World Recreational Fishing Conference 9
Rotterdam, the Netherlands: 4-8 July 2021
The next WRFC, the 10th, will be in 2024. Therefor the deadline for submitting a bidbook is also postponed to 1 May 2021. During the conference in Rotterdam on 6 July the host for WRFC10 will be announced by the scientific board.
We are happy to announce that new dates were found and we booked the venue De Doelen for hosting WRFC9 from 4-8 Juli 2021!
Sportvisserij Nederland, together with the Scientific Board, has decided to postpone WRFC 9 to 2021 due to the covid-19 crisis. People who have already registered for the conference will get their payment back, less the transaction costs.
All accepted abstracts will also be accepted for 2021. We will check with the authors wheter they are able to come in 2021 as soon as we have new dates.
We receive questions whether the WRFC will proceed given the current situation with regard to the COVID-19 virus.
At this very moment there is no reason to reschedule or cancel the conference yet, because it still takes more than 3 months before it is planned. However, it is not the right time to register for the conference of buy flight tickets (if this is possible at all).
We will keep a close eye on developments and will inform you as things develop. Safety is our top priority. We hope to decide in 4 weeks what to do.
