  • Dear Colleagues,

    The symposium of SOFAS 2020 (International Symposium on Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences) which was set to be held from 25 to 27 May at the Prof. Dr. Osman Turan Culture and Congress Center Trabzon, Turkey this year, has officially been postponed to a later date (will be announced after confirmation) considering the continuous Covid-19 situation all around the world, with precautions in terms of travelling, social distance and other quarantine conditions. We have decided as an emergency measure to postpone the SOFAS 2020 symposium after consultation with our colleagues and partners.

    We are terribly sorry for this situation. In view of safety measures and well being of our participants as well as proper coverage of the symposium, we believe it was the best decision to make. We hope it will not be an inconvenience.

    The e-mail address of the Organizing Committee is info@sofas.gov.tr

    Feel free to contact us for further information.
