Abstract

In 2017, the Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) celebrated its 50th Anniversary and to celebrate this landmark occasion its Council supported the sponsorship of a special Anniversary Symposium. This corresponding Special Issue of the Journal of Fish Biology contains a selection of papers presented at that meeting, and we hope gives a flavour of the diversity and dynamism that characterized it.The FSBI was founded in 1967 by prominent fish biologists Jack Jones, David Le Cren, Lionel Mawdesley‐Thomas, Alwynne Wheeler and angling journalist Peter Tombleson, who had all been regular attendees at the annual ‘Coarse Fish Conferences’ held at the University of Liverpool during the mid 1960s. The FSBI began its own venture into holding scientific meetings with day‐long symposia interspersed with occasional larger international meetings, and by the mid‐1980s an annual international symposium had become a major focus of the FSBI's year. Over the intervening years these FSBI‐sponsored symposia have provided many opportunities to bring together scientists from around the globe to discuss, in depth, a wide range of timely and important topics in fish biology and fisheries science. These symposia have recently covered themes as specialized and diverse as the biology of deep sea fishes and
