    Dear colleagues,

    We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy.

    We are thankful to all those who have submitted abstracts for the International Symposium on Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences for “SOFAS 2020”, which was set to be held in in-person format. Unfortunately, we had to postpone SOFAS 2020 considering the continuous Covid-19 situation all around the world with precautions in terms of travelling, social distance and other quarantine conditions. It was an emergency measure taken after consultation with colleagues and partners.

    However, things are different this year and International Symposium on Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences “SOFAS 2022” will be held in Conference Hall, National GeneBank, Trabzon, Türkiye, 25-27 October 2022.

    Detailed information on symposium timeline can be found under “Symposium” menu “Important Dates” menu item. The SOFAS 2022 Symposium will consider the traditional poster, abstract, regular paper and student paper that share the latest innovations from the aquatic community. We invite researchers from all around the world to challenge assumptions and engage in respectful, healthy dialogue, which is necessary for scientific advancement. All submissions accepted for presentation at the SOFAS 2022 Symposium will be subject to review. The guidelines can be found under “Symposium” menu “Annotation for Authors” menu item.
