Held every four years, the 8th World Fisheries Congress was one of the largest gatherings of research, industry and management sectors to discuss the latest advances in fisheries world-wide.

Aiming to foster cooperation and engagement in commercial, recreational and indigenous fisheries.

Providing insightful presentations and inspiring forums on key developments needed to ensure the future sustainable development of the world’s oceans, lakes, estuaries and rivers.

The World Fisheries Congress 2021 was held in Adelaide from 20-24 September 2021.

The Congress was a virtual event allowing delegates to participate online, so the Congress could continue to connect the global fisheries and aquaculture community.
