Conference Theme: The Economics of fish resources and aquatic ecosystems: balancing uses, balancing costs
IIFET is the pre-eminent global organization providing a forum for exchange and interaction among those with an interest in fisheries economics, seafood trade, aquaculture economics, development and management of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, and a range of related marine themes. IIFET is an organization that values both theory and practice, which comes in many forms, from research on fisheries economics concepts and theory, to applied economic studies addressing particular issues, to policy analysis and practical applications for fisheries, aquaculture and other marine uses around the world.
IIFET conferences cover the latest advances in fishery economics theory—including econometric modelling, bioeconomics and market analysis—together with cutting-edge work on management and policy issues, such as analysis of fishery management options, of co-management in fisheries, of interactions between climate change and fisheries, of aquaculture activities at the sector and farm levels, and so on.
The fifteenth biennial conference was held July 13-16, 2010, in Montpellier, a vibrant city combining the best of ancient and modern France.
