The 6th World Recreational Fishing Conference (WRFC) will take place 
from August 1 - 4, 2011, in Berlin Germany at Humboldt-University of 

This conference is the major scientific forum to discuss progress and 
issues in the development and management of recreational fisheries. It 
is of relevance to all researchers and managers as well as 
representatives from industry and NGO's across the world. It is 
particularly relevant because many papers on recreational fisheries find 
their way into a wide range of disciplinary conferences, e.g., fisheries 
conferences, rural sociology, economics and the like. The WRFC 
conference series provide the unique opportunity to network with all 
peers interested in a common theme, and also to bring researchers and 
managers together and learn from experiences in other areas of the 
world. To this end, the 6th WRFC explicitly invites a broad spectrum of 
multidisciplinary abstract submissions so that collaboration and 
networking as well as exchange of cutting edge knowledge and insights 
from a wide range of fields is encouraged.

The theme of the 6th WRFC is "*Toward Resilient Recreational 
Fisheries*". A preliminary program with a list of conference themes and 
special theme sessions has been compiled and put online on the 
conference website (**). As mentioned, this program 
is intented to attract a wide range of delegates from academia, 
fisheries management, industry as well as governamental and 
non-governamental organizations and avid anglers to jointly discuss 
papers presented on recreational fisheries orally and in poster formats. 
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the peer-reviewed 
literature after full peer-review.

There are four thematic sessions planned. Delegates will be asked to 
consider submitting their abstracts to these focal areas:

   1. Globalization of recreational fisheries
   2. Space, place and recreational fisheries
   3. Change, adaptation and evolution in recreational fisheries
   4. Stock, stocking and the future of recreational fisheries**

In addition, contributed papers can be developed fitting any of the 
following topical areas:

    * Social value change and ethics of recreational fishing
    * Payments for conservation of fish biodiversity
    * Property rights and co-management
    * Allocation of fisheries resources among competing demands
    * New methodological tools to survey and assess recreational fisheries
    * Creative methods for managing recreational fishing
    * Understanding and solving conservation and other conflicts in
      recreational fisheries
    * Angling tourism development: social, economic and biological
    * Biological impacts of recreational fisheries and their social and
      economic consequences
    * Harvest regulations and effort controls in recreational fisheries:
      social, economic and ecological perspectives
    * Biological and social aspects of catch-and-release
    * Social, economic and biological aspects of a diversifying angler
    * Aquatic stewardship behaviour and education
    * Science-based recreational fisheries and traditional ecological

This announcement is just to make you aware about this important meeting 
in the summer of 2011. *Please note the calender days and try to secure 
your travel funds in advance.* It also makes sense to start thinking 
about how to develop your abstracts to fit the conference themes. *A 
first official call for papers will be issued in autumn this year.*
