The Iberian Society of Ichthyology (SIBIC) will give continuity to the organization of the Iberian Conferences of Ichthyology after a lapse of 20 years from the date of the last edition. The objective of the IV Iberian Congress of Ichthyology will be to promote the exchange of knowledge between researchers and professionals dedicated to the study and conservation of fish in the Iberian Peninsula. The topics included in this conference will be all those related to the interests of the SIBIC, that is, the study and conservation of native fish (freshwater, euryhaline and diadromous) of the continental aquatic ecosystems (fluvial, lacustrine and estuarine) of the Iberian Peninsula.
