4th Congress of the International Society of Fish and Shellfish Immunology

12-15 December 2022
Bodø, Norway

The International Conference of Fish and Shellfish Immunology is the scientific congress of the International Society of Fish & Shellfish Immunology held every three years, where fish immunologists, fish pathologists, and aquaculture associates meet to discuss recent advances in fish immunology.

Over 250 international delegates representing researchers and students from universities, research institutions, and industries from the five continents participate in the event. The ambitions of these scientists are to reduce disease in aquatic animals including farmed fish and shellfish, improve animal welfare, reduce the impact of antibiotics on the environment through the use of vaccination, and ultimately produce a superior market product for the consumer.

The next meeting will be hosted by Nord University in Bodø, Norway, on December 12-15, 2022. Nord University through the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture is an international center for basic and applied aquaculture research and development and is home to the Research Marine Center (RMC).

The main conference will last for 4 days and will consist of plenary lectures, and oral and poster presentations covering a wide range of topics including immunology, molecular biology, and microbiology. We proactively encourage the participation of undergraduate, and graduate (MS/Ph.D.) students and young researchers and welcome your support for making this possible.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the Conference are:

  • Vaccines & Vaccinations
  • Molluscan Immunity
  • Crustacean Immunity
  • Anti-viral Response
  • Effect of Diet on the Immune System
  • Anti-Bacterial Response
  • Host-Microbe immune interactions
  • Functional Genomics
  • Anti-Parasite Response
