One of regular and main activity of ASEAN-FEN is to annually organize the International Fishery Symposium (IFS) to serve as a major platform in bringing together those involved in fisheries and aquaculture.

Seminar Theme

“Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture for the Benefits of Mankind” is the theme for the 8th International Fishery Symposium 2018 (IFS 2018) to reflect sustainable development goals of FAO and ensure sustainability of quality fish resources for future generation of mankind. It is our responsibility through academic research and education in promoting sustainable exploitation, quality production and effective management of fisheries resources and products. Thus, this symposium will bring together researchers, scholars, students, officials, private sectors and all stakeholders to come together sharing and discussing their experiences and knowledges.
