Annual Conference & AGM

Each year, the FSRS hosts an annual conference that allows members, fishermen, scientists, industry workers, students and the general public to come together for a collaborative discussion of recent research and findings within the fishing industry.

Our 28th Annual Conference and AGM was held virtually on March 25, 2021. The FSRS would like to thank our presenters, attendees, donors, and auction participants for all their support.

Thank you to those who donated to the auction, and to those who bid on items! Check out a few examples of items we had donated: Abeego Beeswax Wraps, Spartan Marine Oil Gear, and Amos Pewter Ornaments
