Welcome Statement

Welcome to the 2020 joint meeting of the Canadian Conference For Fisheries Research and the Society of Canadian Limnologists. Our Halifax program includes the annual Stevenson and Rigler lectures, 98 talks and 37 posters. We would like to highlight our poster presenters this year by giving the official poster session a prime time slot, so please make sure to visit the posters and their owners on Saturday from 3:30 PM onward. A number of student volunteers have come forward to make this conference run smoothly, so please thank them for their efforts! Our generous sponsors need some love, too, so please visit them during breaks to have a chat. Halifax is a very sociable place by reputation, so we look forward to seeing everyone at the social events and society meetings. Have a great conference! Consume donairs at your own risk...

Your organizing committee,
Trevor Avery
Laura Weir

Session Leads

We need conference session leads! It is our hope that this duty is not placed on students as they are the next generation of aquatic scientists and professionals and should be free to roam, engage, listen, learn, and participate. Thus, we will be seeking experienced people. Please volunteer at the registration desk!

Swag Bags

To reduce waste and keep your swag bag collection from piling up, we will not be providing bags this year. But, we do encourage you to re-use your most cherished/oldest/weirdest swag bag from conferences past! Our student volunteers will be keeping an eye out for the best candidates, and the "winners" will be announced at the Saturday night event. Prizes TBD, but at the very least your awesome bag will win you some serious respect!

Hotel to Conference Centre Link

The Four Points is currently upgrading the link between the hotel and the conference rooms. You will see signs directing you to access the conference centre from the hotel via the second floor - follow them wherever they take you! It is not a trick. You do not have to go outside into the Halifax winter, but you may see some construction materials on your journey. There are no cranes, and you are not in danger.
