Welcoming Address

Welcome to the 2015, 3rd International Conference on Fish Telemetry (ICFT)

On behalf of the organizing committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 3rd ICFT, 13-17 July 2015 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Taking place for the first time in North America, the 3rd ICFT will present the latest aquatic-animal telemetry research under emerging topics like transboundary issues, visualization and modelling, and intelligent open-access data.

This year’s conference is hosted by the Ocean Tracking Network and will be held at the World Trade and Convention Centre, with accommodations in the connecting Delta Halifax Hotel, in the Halifax downtown-core.

Halifax’s ties to the ocean are deep and bold. Home to Historic Properties, leading ocean-research institutions and many marine-based industries, Halifax offers an array of ocean experiences.

Registration is now open. Don’t forget to join the mailing list to track ICFT news.

We look forward to welcoming you!
