Tenth Biennial Conference of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics & Trade

November 26, 2001 (Chicago) Farm Foundation provided support for the International Institute of Fisheries Economics & Trade (IIFET) 2000 conference which attracted approximately 550 researchers, industry members and resource managers from 46 countries. Program details and copies of papers are posted on the conference website. The conference met the organizers' objective of increasing human capital by sharing knowledge among many disciplines from around the world. Alternative views on how best to manage the world's natural resources and incorporate aquaculture were discussed. The conference resulted in the formation of the North American Association of Fisheries Economists.

The proceedings are now available on CD. This interdisciplinary conference addressed a wide variety of topics from many perspectives--economic, social, regulatory, marketing, historical, and medical, among others. A small sample of the topics covered includes:
