The Iberian toothcarp has a great ability to inhabit from freshwaters to hypersaline environments. However, the destruction and pollution of its habitats, together with the introduction of invasive species, have pushed the toothcarp to a high risk of extinction.
On behalf of the Iberian Society of Ichthyology (SIBIC), we would like to invite you to participate in the VI Iberian Congress of Ichthyology, titled ‘Ichthyology: dedication to marine fish, freshwater fish and aquaculture’, which will be held at the Auditorium and Congress Centre Victor Villegas, in Murcia (Spain) between the 21st and the 24th of June 2016. SIBIC congresses are celebrated every two years, to address scientific and management challenges related to different aspects of Ichthyology. The forthcoming 6th edition of such Congress specifically aims at creating a meeting point between conservationists, researchers and managers working with marine fishes, freshwater fishes and aquaculture.
We are convinced that gathering a group of specialists and people interested in the study and conservation of this vertebrate taxon is essential, as well as encouraging debate and knowledge interchange is also essential to find solution to the current problems concerning fishes, their habitats and their use.
Together with your participation, please, consider disseminating this event to all those organisations and people who could be interested in taking part in the VI Iberian Congress of Ichthyology.
We hope to see you in Murcia in June 2016.
Dr Mar Torralva, President of Local Organising Committee and Vice-president of the SIBIC
