What Our Members Say

William Perry, PhD candidate Bangor University

Student Member Travel Grant Awardee

"I first joined the FSBI in the last year of my undergraduate degree in 2015. To be able to represent the FSBI 4 years later at the American Fisheries Society annual meeting, and present results from my PhD, was a great honour. It was a meeting in which I was lucky enough to listen to an array of stimulating talks, while also making valuable international connections in the world of fish biology."
