Fish habitat ecology and conservation - Fisheries Society of the British Isles Annual Symposium 2005

Location: School of Ocean Sciences, University of Wales, Ban
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2005-07-18    
End Date: 2005-07-22

Event Description:
Fish habitat ecology and conservation


In an era of increasing pressure on natural aquatic resources, understanding the ecology and importance of fish habitats is critical for effective conservation. Freshwater fisheries ecologists have been more conscious of the key role of habitat in management and conservation of fish populations but are still faced with many fundamental ecological challenges in terms of scale issues, and the ever increasing threat of introduced species. Managers of marine fisheries have been concerned primarily with stock assessment and forecasting and it is only in recent decades that the issue of habitat modification has become an integral issue in management approaches. This conference will address underlying themes that have application in all aquatic systems and will critically evaluate the next steps needed to advance this field of fish ecology.
