Postponed: 61st Western Fish Disease Workshop

The FHS EXCOM and meeting organizers of the 2020 Western Fish Disease Workshop and the 2020 Joint Meeting of the Northeast Fish Committee and the AFS Fish Health Section have been closely monitoring the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic on the ability to hold safe and successful meetings. Given the current circumstances and uncertainty of the next few months, we have decided to postpone both meetings until 2021.

Please stay tuned for details as we work through this situation and begin to make arrangements for both meetings in 2021.
