This is the Second Call for Papers for the 6^th World Recreational

explicitly dealing with, and centring on, the emerging field of 
recreational fisheries science, management and development in freshwater 
and marine environments, in both developed and developing nations. The 
conference is open to researchers, managers, NGO representatives and 
avid anglers from a wide range of fields. We particularly encourage a 
multi-disciplinary crowd as audience and for paper presentations.

We again cordially invite abstracts from a wide range of scientific 
disciplines and management applications in recreational fisheries. 
Topics fitting one of the following conference themes and contributed 
sessions are particularly welcomed (see

An International Scientific Advisory Board will help make decisions on 
the final list of speakers. Paper abstracts submitted until the deadline 
of *March, 15, 2011* and not selected as oral presentations can be 
presented as posters if they fit the conference themes.

The conference is a standard scientific meeting with short scientific 
presentations (15 minutes) and discussions (5 minutes) in English. Key 
note speakers are Prof Dr John Post, Dr Zeb Hogan and Brad Gentner. 
Please visit <> to 
learn about the esteemed key note lectures ranging from sustainability 
issues and collapse of fisheries to economics and conservation of the 
world's megafishes. In addition to the core scientific conference we 
offer a range of socials, with the highlight being the conference dinner 
in the Saurian Hall of Berlin National History Museum on the evening of 
August, 3, 2011. The proceedings of the scientific meeting are to be 
published after full peer review in the scientific journal Fisheries 
Management and Ecology.

You have to submit abstracts and register through the website <>. Please do not email 
abstracts. Abstract submissions (1500 characters maximum, excluding

Thanks to the invaluable support of our sponsors, in-house support by 
Humboldt-University, the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and 
Inland Fisheries and the co-organizing organization, the German Angler 
Association, we can offer a modest registration fee of a maximum of 250
