AFS Symposium: Biology, Management, and Culture of Walleye, Sauger, and Yellow Perch: Status and Needs

American Fisheries Society - 150th Annual Meeting, Colombus, Ohio, August 30 - September 3, 2020

Symposium: Biology, Management, and Culture of Walleye, Sauger, and Yellow Perch: Status and Needs

Walleye, one of the most sought-after species of freshwater sport fishes in North America, and its ‘sister’ species, the Sauger, have demonstrated appreciable declines in their numbers from their original populations since the beginning of the 20th century. Similarly, Yellow Perch, once the most commonly caught sport fish and an important commercial species in North America, have also shown declines. Yet, some western states and provinces are trying to extirpate Walleye and Yellow Perch where they have been introduced outside of their native range. The purpose of this one-day symposium is to present up-to-date information on the biology and management of Walleye, Sauger, and Yellow Perch, since the 2011 publication of the AFS book, Biology, Management, and Culture of Walleye and Sauger, the companion column in Fisheries that year (36[12]), Future Research Needs of Walleye and Sauger, and pertinent review papers in Biology of Perch (CRC Press, 2015). Presentations will include topics on systematics, genetics, physiology, ecology, population dynamics, culture, recent case histories, and management practices, which will be of interest to managers, researchers, and students who deal with these important species, particularly in light of habitat alterations, population shifts, and other biotic and abiotic factors related to a changing climate. 

Organizer: John Clay Bruner, email: jbruner@ualberta.ca

If you are interested in presenting a talk on Walleye, Sauger, or Yellow Perch at the American Fisheries Society’s 150thannual meeting in Columbus, Ohio, please contact John Bruner to be included in the symposium. Thank you. 


Accepted Symposia proposals will be posted on the conference website on February 14, 2020. If accepted, organizers must submit a complete list of confirmed presentations and titles by March 13, 2020. Abstracts for Symposium oral presentations must be submitted by March 20, 2020

10th European Algae Industry Summit

October 20-21, 2020, Reykjavik, Iceland

This edition will focus on improving production methods, both from an efficiency and a sustainable perspective, with case studies from key players of each segment bringing forward their experience.

The conference will also take an in-depth look into the most recently developed technologies, the potential of algae as a biomaterials, as well as the way to get algae to the next level, on a standards, awareness and marketing levels. The various conference topics will be discussed through case studies sessions and interactive panel discussions, to ensure a positive exchange with all industry actors involved.

The participants will also have the chance to discuss how to keep the industry thriving as a whole during the numerous Q&As, and the extended networking breaks.

7th International Conference on Applied Algae (ISAP2020→ISAP2021)

New date and venue has been confirmed for ISAP2020→ISAP2021.

ISAP 2020 has been rescheduled for May 23 - 28, 2021 at International Congress Center, EPOCHAL TSUKUBA.

Previous ISAP Congresses had achieved the role of gathering the people with knowledge & skills in the field of applied algal biotechnology and their potential in a commercial, remedial or regulatory context for a further development. The last 2017 Congress was to appreciate the huge phycological biodiversity and the diversity of its biotechnological applications through the prism of a new and promising industrial sector in full development.
Tribute to the past ISAP Congresses, the ISAP 2021 succeed to taking a role in bringing back a place where people who is working on applied algal biotechnology can gather. The 6 days Congress will include oral and poster presentations, exhibitions, mid- Congress tours, and B to B networking sessions, as well as young algae scientist /entrepreneur sessions.

Physiomar 2021

Nelson, New Zealand. September 7-10, 2021

Physiomar is a triennial international forum for discussion of recent advances in all aspects of the physiology of aquatic invertebrates. The conference has no parallel sessions and is usually attended by participants from over 25 countries. It is an opportunity to maximise exchange of knowledge and expertise, and encourage collaboration in all areas including functional biology, growth, nutrition, reproduction, and adaptation to an ever-changing environment.
