Fiskeforum 2022 Stockholm – do we have sustainable fishery today?

Dates: 19 - 20 October 2022

In 2019, an annual conference on fish and fisheries development issues was established. Unfortunately, the conference called Fiskeforum could not take place in 2020 and 2021 due to the Corona pandemic. On 19-20 October 2022, it's finally time again. This time on the theme Fishing of the future – ecological, social and economic. Fiskeforum2022 aims to highlight and discuss Swedish fishing from a sustainability perspective. The ambition is to bring together the entire fishing industry and the key players in the system that affects the development of sustainable fishing in Sweden. The conference brings together professional fishermen, recreational anglers, household fishermen, fishing tourism entrepreneurs, fishing water owners, product and destination developers, financiers, politicians, government representatives, researchers and scientific advice, etc. We will ask ourselves whether we have a sustainable fishery today and what needs to be done so that in the future we will have viable aquatic ecosystems as well as competitive fishing industries and good opportunities for recreational fishing. Many of the questions are of great importance for the implementation of the new national strategy for the development of fisheries and aquaculture as well as the sector-specific action plans that link to the strategy. More information about the strategy and action plans can be found here. Joint strategy shows the way forward for Swedish fishing and aquaculture. THE CONFERENCE WILL BE IN SWEDISH
