The sixth conference “Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology” will be held April 19-22. 2022.

Due to the current international travel restrictions the sixth IAFSB conference will take  place in 2022 instead of 2021.

Great Science at a Beautiful Location. IAFSB conferences promote the dialogue between experts from different disciplines that have a common interest in fish skeletal research and comparative skeletal biology. Participants come from disciplines such as Evolution and Development, Developmental Genomics and Proteomics, Biomedical Sciences and Regenerative Medicine, Ichthyology and Systematics, Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics, Aquaculture and Nutrition, and others.

The emphasis of the conference is to facilitate discussions, to exchange ideas and concepts. The location of the conference is ideal for this purpose. A historic fishing village turned into a hotel where we can accommodate about 100 participants.  IAFSB on Facebook
