Abouts FINS

FINS is the Freshwater Invasives – Networking for Strategy conference being hosted by Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) and the European Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture Advisory Commission (EIFAAC). FINS  will address key topics relating to freshwater invasive species and harmful aquatic pathogens.

The primary objective of the conference is to provide a forum where international scientists, policy makers and stakeholders will address designated themes with a view to informing management and policy development in this increasingly important area. The themes that will provide the focus for deliberations during the conference will be:

  • Policy
  • Biosecurity
  • Management & Risk Assessment
  • Economics

Invited experts from around the globe will address the above themes, with ample time given to panel discussion.

Workshop sessions led by the keynote speakers and other experts, as required, will provide the main focus of the conference and will be arranged to facilitate involvement of all delegates in relatively small groups.

Synthesis sessions will aim to draw firm conclusions from the discussions and put forward concrete recommendations that will inform both national and international policy makers.
