Improving the ecological status of fish communities in inland waters

Event Description:
International Symposium and EFI+ Workshop

30th March to 3rd April 2009, Hull, UK

Current world-wide developments in the legislative basis of the management of water resources (e.g. WFD, EU Habitats Directive, Clean Water Act [ USA ]) have underpinned the importance of conserving or improving the ecological status of rivers, lakes & estuaries in the face of increasing human pressures and impacts on natural systems. These changes in legislation have also reinforced the importance of fish assemblages as key indicators of the ecological and conservation status, given the temporal and spatial scales over which fish interact with catchment processes and human impacts. However, whilst these changes in legislation have been widely supported they have raised a number of issues and difficulties for stakeholders to address. For scientists and managers working on fish these issues relate to both assessing current ecological status and to developing suitable rehabilitation programmes to improve the status of degraded systems. Much work is currently being undertaken at an international level to address these issues. Therefore, The University of Hull International Fisheries Institute and the EFI+ project are coordinating an international symposium which addresses current status of fish-based ecological assessment and rehabilitation and considers what aspects are still to be addressed for successful implementation of recent environmental legislation.

Aims

Along with disseminating the results of the EFI+ project to the scientific community, administrators, and stakeholders; the symposium will extend the discussion on the strategies needed to implement successfully current environmental legislation with respect to improving the status of fish communities. Selected presentations will be published in peer-reviewed proceedings. The conference continues the series of international symposia hosted by HIFI since 1988 in the themes of fisheries and environmental management (http://www.hull.ac.uk/hifi/events/).

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ORAL ABSTRACTS HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The call for poster abstracts will remain open.
