20th Biennial Conference of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade (IIFET)
Managing a chaging environment in international trade is a key issue nowadays. With the aim of dicussing this topic we are glad to inform you that our 20th Biennial Conference is going to be held from 29th June to 3rd July 2020 in Vigo and a Policy Day probably in Santiago de Compostela.
The International Institute of Fisheries Economics & Trade (IIFET) is a global organization consisting 700+ members from over 65 countries around the world. IIFET provides an international forum for the exchange of research, information, and ideas on the economics of fisheries management, seafood trade, and aquaculture.
Our goal is to advance the productive use of economic theory and analysis to answer critical questions surrounding the sustainable use of marine resources and to ensure future livelihoods of those who produce food from the sea.
Through this website we will keep you updated with all the information regarding this upcoming event, an important forum for members and others to learn about important research developments in seafood trade, aquaculture, and fisheries management. As in our previous conferences our meeting is going to be attended by fisheries, social scientists, managers, and industry members from all of the world's fishing areas. Keynote speakers and submitted papers address a variety of both applied and theoretical topics. These conferences provide participants with unparalleled opportunities to interact with the world's foremost fisheries economists in both formal and informal settings. They also allow us to visit a wide variety of international locations to learn more about fishing and aquaculture activities across the globe..
We hope to welcome you in Galicia, a coastal Spanish region that is closely related to the sea life and trade, with Vigo being one of the main ports for fishing and transportation worldwide.
