The 6^th World Recreational Fishing Conference (WRFC) will be held at 
Humboldt-University Berlin from August 1 – 4, 2011 organized by the 
Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries 
(, Humboldt-University and the German Angler 
Association. The conference theme is “Toward Resilient Recreational 
Fisheries”. Abstract submission is now open and you are cordially 
invited to submit your paper or register as a delegate without given a 
paper to attend this unique scientific meeting in the vibrant and 
culturally rich German capital during beautiful summer time of 2011.

*Please circulate this First Call for Papers widely in your network and 
country including academia, management, NGOs and industry dealing with, 
or interested in, recreational fisheries science, policy and management, 
and consider submitting your paper to this important venue.*

The WRFC is the only scientific venue world-wide bringing together 
scientists, managers, NGOs and policy-makers in the specific context of 
recreational fisheries. The conference is a standard scientific meeting 
with short scientific presentations and discussions in English without 
any translations. Key note speakers are Dr. John Post, Brad Gentner and 
Dr. Zeb Hogan. Please visit 
<> to learn about our esteemed key note 
speakers and their lecture topics ranging from sustainability issues to 
economics and conservation. The proceedings of the scientific meeting 
are to be published after peer review in the impact factor journal 
Fisheries Management and Ecology.

High-quality abstracts from a range of scientific disciplines as well as 
management-oriented case studies dealing explicitly with issues in 
recreational fisheries are strongly encouraged to be submitted. *We are 
particularly seeking to bring together various scientific disciplines 
such as fisheries biology, human dimensions, economics, anthropology and 
policy sciences to encourage interaction across disciplines and between 
science, management, industry and management practice*. See 
** <> for further 
details, including programme content, preliminary theme sessions and 
contributed session topics. Please make sure to tailor your abstracts to 
one of the various theme and contributed session topics. We will offer 
sessions pending on the number of suitable abstracts received.  The 
issues covered are broad enough to accommodate a range of topical papers 
and papers from both natural and social scientific perspectives.

*Abstract submission is possible until March, 1, 2011* (closing 
deadline). You may also register preliminarily as an attendee without 
submitting an abstract. Early abstract submission is preferred to help 
in conference planning. Presentation format includes either 15 min. 
presentation or posters. An international scientific board will be 
evaluating abstract submissions and compose a preliminary programme 
around theme sessions and contributed sessions. *Notification of 
abstract acceptance will be completed until April, 1, 2011.*

You have to submit abstracts and register through the website <>. Please do not email 

Registration by payment is not needed at this stage. A personal account 
upon registration will be created, which can be used to finish the 
registration by payment (deadline May, 15, 2011). We are currently 
finishing the budgeting and the likely conference fees will range 
between 200 and 400 € per person depending on student status. Details 
will be announced later in 2011 at

available, but as sponsoring money becomes available the conference
