IIFET-2018 Gender Special Session

The 2018 Conference of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade (IIFET) was held at the University of Washington, Seattle, Wa (USA) from 16-20 July. A Special Session “Bringing Gender Discourse in Fisheries Economics and Trade” attracted a stimulating set of presentations (see our report). The first Rosemary Firth Prize for Best Paper on the Economics of Gender in Fisheries and Aquaculture was awarded in the IIFET 2018 Conference Opening Session, and two special lunch time events focused on making the case for why gender matters in fisheries economics and trade, and a women’s professional networking lunch.
