Synopsis of the Fourth International Percid Fishes Symposia

By: , and 



Percids play an integral role in food webs and freshwater fisheries of the world. Anthropogenic stressors such as pollution, overfishing, invasive species, and climate change threaten percid diversity and the sustainability of economically important fisher-ies. The International Percid Fish Symposium is the only scien-tific conference dedicated to this family of fishes, offering unique opportunities for communication, discussion, and collaboration among scientists studying these valuable fishes. In this synopsis, we review the history of the percid symposia with an emphasis on the recent Fourth International Percid Fish Symposium held in Tartu, Estonia, during April 2016 and discuss future needs and direction for this important scientific conference.
