In addition to its post-graduate, research and travel grants, the FSBI will consider applications for financial support, to a maximum of £10K per annum, of other activities or initiatives that support or promote the Society’s objectives.
In addition to grants for travel and small research projects, the FSBI also sponsors a number of initiatives, most notably the publication of The Journal of Fish Biology and the Society's annual conference. The FSBI has an annual budget of £10K to consider ad hoc proposals for sponsorship of initiatives proposed by FSBI members that further the Society's objectives. For example, in 2006 the Society sponsored two work placements with the Voluntary Service Overseas to provide assistance to poor and disadvantaged women and men dependent on fishery and forest resources in the Tonle Sap Lake and Mekong provinces in North East Cambodia.
There is no formal application form or procedure. In the first instance, interested persons should make contact with the Society's President or Secretary to discuss the potential suitability of the proposed initiative for FSBI support. If deemed suitable, then a concept note will be required for Council consideration.
