We are fast approaching the 3rd Global Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries that will be held from 21-23 April in Shanghai as part of the 9th Asian Fisheries and Aquaculture Forum. We have had an excellent response to the call for papers with about 50 oral presentations and posters on the agenda (https://genderaquafish.org/gaf3-2/gaf3-program-and-abstracts/). We thank FAO and AFS for helping support the Symposium.
Following the events in Shanghai, we will be preparing and distributing a short press release on the event and a slightly longer report. Both of these will be suitable for use in newsletter and magazines. The papers and other reports from GAF3 will appear later in 2011 as a special edition of the Asian Fisheries Society journal, Asian Fisheries Science. We urge you to follow news of GAF3, plus other gender, fisheries and aquaculture news on https://genderaquafish.org/, or better still, by becoming a subscriber (see left hand side of page).
