10th Specialist Conference May 2020; Delivering Action for Salmon

Register and submit abstract here

May 12th 2020- Abstract submission deadline 3rd Feb 2020

To celebrate 10 years of IFM Specialist Conferences we have joined with the International Year of the Salmon (IYS) to host the flagship IYS conference for the UK. The conference will also be supporting World Fish Migration Day.

The conference’s aim is to bring people together to share knowledge, raise public awareness and to encourage people and businesses to sign up to action to protect and enhance wild Atlantic salmon as part of the International Year of the Salmon.

The outcome we are seeking is a ‘blueprint’ for delivery, a toolkit that can accelerate the delivery of the necessary environmental improvements to restore Atlantic salmon populations.  We want to learn from those organisations that we need to work with to deliver the necessary environmental changes, to share best practice in delivering action from across the ‘salmosphere’, and build professional capability and understanding.

The conference will be over three days with talks and field trips that are focussed around the conference aims.
