The 9th International Symposium on Sturgeons
With our deepest regret, we have to convey the unpleasant news that the International Symposium on Sturgeons ISS9, planned to take place in Chenghaodu in October 2021, will be postponed by one year to October 2022 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The unforeseeable development of COVID-19 will likely result in travel restrictions and decreased participation in 2021 due to health concerns. Organization of a meeting during these insecure times does not seem feasible.
As such, the WSCS and the China Aquatic Wildlife Conservation Association have mutually agreed to postpone the event by at least one year.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the pandemic will come to a halt soon and that events like the ISS designed to facilitate exchange and collaboration will be possible again.
