Annual Conference and AGM

Each year, the FSRS organizes and hosts an annual conference and AGM that allows FSRS members, fishermen, scientists, industry workers, students and the general public to meet and discuss recent research and findings within the fishing industry.

This year is our 26th annual conference and AGM. It will be held on March 7, 2019 at Best Western Plus Dartmouth. We are still finalizing the details of speakers and events, so stay tuned!

If you are interested in attending, please register here or call our office. Please note we will be charging $30 this year to help cover the cost of break and lunches.

As always, we will be hosting the student poster competition again this year! If you are a student interested in showcasing your research at this year’s conference, please fill out this form and email

This year we have reserved 20 rooms at the hotel for $135 + tax. These rooms can be booked by calling the hotel directly at 902-463-2000 or 1-866-676-9846 and asking for the room block for FSRS. Reservations must be made by February 6, 2019 to ensure the group rate. You can also make reservations online.
