The International Fishing Industry Safety and Health Conference (IFISH)

*UPDATE* As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has put conferences across the world into a state of uncertainty. We are currently weighing options for IFISH 6 and will announce our plans as soon as they are finalized. Until then, stay safe!


IFISH is the only international conference dedicated to fishing, aquaculture, and seafood processing health and safety. Since 2000, IFISH has offered researchers, safety and health professionals, instructors, workers and industry experts, ergonomists, governmental and regulatory representatives, and other professionals the opportunity to attend keynote lectures, workshops, presentations, and poster sessions that feature new occupational health and safety research findings and innovations. 

IFISH is sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Northeast Center for Occupational Health and Safety (NEC). Past IFISH conferences have been in Woods Hole, Massachusetts; Sitka, Alaska; Mahabalipuram, India; Reykjavik, Iceland; and St. John’s, Newfoundland.
