It is our pleasure to inform you that the Japanese Society of Fisheries Science will hold an international symposium entitled “Fisheries Science for the Future Generations”.
Many people in developed countries are keen to improve their health by eating good sources of protein. Seafood is particularly suitable, and so the demand for seafood has been increasing around the world. However, against this social background, the decrease of natural resources, competition for limited resources, influences of climate change on fishery species, and so forth have become serious global issues requiring solutions through research in the field of fisheries science. Interested parties from industry, government and academia need to gather and discuss these difficult problems.
Accordingly, we will hold an international symposium on “Fisheries Science for the Future Generations” at the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, Shinagawa campus in September 2017. This symposium will also commemorate the 85th anniversary of the Japanese Society of Fisheries Science. One of the main purposes of this symposium is to discuss the ideal vision for future research on fisheries science together with young researchers from all over the world.
I sincerely hope that many participants from academia, industry and government will attend this symposium, engage in active discussion, and produce outcomes for young researchers who will shoulder the next generation.
