AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY FOR FISH BIOLOGY 50TH CELEBRATION AND STUDENT MIXER

Who: ASFB members and students attending the Congress. New members are welcome, please click here to become one.

Date: Tuesday, 21 September 2021

Venue: Malt Shovel Taphouse

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

What’s included: A few drinks, some nibbles, but importantly face-to-face networking and colleagues!

Why: ASFB is turning 50 years young in 2021, and we want to bring everyone together and celebrate in an informal way at the start of the WFC2021 week. We’re proposing to start the evening off focusing on a student mixer, aimed at getting students to mingle and get-to-know each other. The evening will transition into a gathering of ASFB members with a chance to share memories of ASFB’s of old, and importantly share our hopes for our Society for the next 50 years.

Please note: we will also celebrate our 50th in other ways too, but this is a great opportunity to gather, reacquaint, meet and network in a casual ASFB environment.
