First International Fish Impingement and Entrainment Conference
11th – 13th July 2023
Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool
The conference will feature presentations on fish and eel impingement and entrainment at industrial and other intake structures across fresh, transitional and marine waters. Speakers will be drawn from academic research institutes, industrial bodies, regulators and consultancies.
This is the first time that so many experts in these fields have been brought together and we will be welcoming over 50 speakers from the USA, Australia and across Europe to Liverpool all of which have considerable practical experience in these specialist areas.
The programme covers a range of subjects including:
- Fish Stock Assessments & Behaviour
- Fish Friendly Pump & Turbine Research (double session)
- Exclusion Screening Technology
- Fish Recovery and Return (FRR) Systems (double session)
- Regulation and Mitigation Techniques at Industrial Intakes
- Avoidance Behaviours and Techniques at Damaging Intakes
- Evidence-Led Fish Protection
- Wider Considerations and Techniques
Each day will open with a keynote speaker, and we are delighted to have three of the leading researchers in the field to present them:
Dr Andrew Turnpenny from the UK will open the conference with the Peter Spillett Lecture
Day two’s keynote will be presented by Dr Jonathan Black of EPRI in the USA
Day three will open with a keynote from Dr Craig Boys from NSW Department of Primary Industries in Australia.
Alongside the main conference there will also be posters, trade exhibition, eel art as well as a number of social events including a showing of the new Britain’s Hidden Fishes Film by Jack Perks and a conference dinner on the Mersey Ferry, an evening not to be missed.
