international aquarium congress

The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre is hosting this year's International Aquarium Congress. The IAC meets every four years in different locations around the world to provide "the scientific community with the latest on marine life research, extending the opportunity to discuss global and local issues and sharing successful initiatives." Although the IAC is geared toward marine life, many of the issues discussed have an impact on freshwater fish as well. Speakers will discuss climate change, conservation and sustainability. Noted conservationist, Dr. Paul Loiselle will be giving a presentation on the state of freshwater fish populations.
