Fisheries Society of the British Isles

The FSBI is an international, non-political, learned society based in the United Kingdom, that supports scientific activity in fish biology and fisheries science through charitable activities including grant funding, travel awards and conference sponsorship, and through the publication of the Journal of Fish Biology.

Membership is open to anyone interested in these objectives.
