Western Rock Lobster and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development are pleased to be hosting the 12th International Conference and Workshop on Lobster Biology and Management (ICWL) in Fremantle, Western Australia on 18-23 October 2020.
This lobster workshop returns to where it all began in Western Australia over 40 years ago when a group of 37 lobster biologists from 6 countries met in Perth to discuss and compare their work on lobster ecology, physiology, and management protocols, and to find common themes amongst the different species that were commercially fished. In recent years, participation has risen to roughly 150-200 people from 20 countries!
As well as fascinating scientific presentations from all around the world, an industry day is also planned to be an important component of the program so we are looking forward to strong support from lobster industry participants.
The timing of the workshop is the week following the World Fisheries Congress on 11-15 October 2020 in Adelaide, South Australia which provides an excellent opportunity to attend two world-class events during your visit to Australia if you’re travelling from afar.
