Subject: North American Fisheries Economists will Meet

Dear Fishfolk:

At IIFET 2000, a group of North American fisheries economists explored the idea
of forming a group which would meet in the interim years between IIFET
conferences, with the objectives laid out below. They have acted quickly to
organize their first meeting. This group will have an affiliation with IIFET,
details to be worked out as things develop. Please contact
one of the committee members below, to express your interest or for further

Regards, Ann Shriver, IIFET

APRIL 1-4, 2001

The first North American Fisheries Economics Forum will be held on April
1-4, 2001 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The goals of the Forum are to
strengthen communication between North American fisheries economists in
industry, government and academia, and to provide opportunities to discuss
research results, research in process and future research needs and plans.

The Forum will include special sessions on a wide variety of topics related
to fisheries economics and trade. Currently planned special sessions include
the following:

* The Future of Aquaculture
* Aquaculture Regulation and Policy Issues
* Catfish Economics and Marketing
* Seafood Trade and the Internet
* Implications of Trade Liberalization for Fisheries
* The Role of Economics in Canadian Fisheries Management
* U.S. Fishery Management Councils and Economics: What is Needed and How
to Get It?
* Using Economic Incentives in Managing Bycatch

Abstracts are invited for papers for special sessions or on other topics
related to fisheries economics and trade. The deadline for submitting
abstracts is January 19, 2001. Suggestions for additional special sessions
are invited, as well as volunteers to organize sessions.

Four informal "Introductions and Ongoing Activities" sessions will provide
opportunities for industry, government, academic and student fisheries
economists to introduce themselves and briefly discuss their areas of
interest and ongoing activities.

An overview of Gulf Coast fisheries economic and management issues will be
held on April 4, which will include visits to processing facilities and
fishing vessels.

The Forum will serve as the inaugural meeting of the North American
Association of Fisheries Economists. This Association will be affiliated
with International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade (IIFET), an
international organization of fisheries economists which meets in
even-numbered years in different countries around the world. Future North
American Fisheries Economics Forums will be held in odd-numbered years in
different coastal areas of North America. (The most recent IIFET meeting was
held in Corvallis, Oregon in July 2000, and the next meeting will be in
Brisbane, Australia in July 2002.)

Economics Forum, to submit abstracts, or to volunteer to organize a session,
