*10th Indo-Pacific Fish Conference*
2nd - 6th of October 2017
Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia
hosted by the cultural center of Tahiti

The Indo-Pacific Fish Conference (IPFC - https://ipfc10.criobe.pf/) is an
international conference held every four years, which has been attracting
world–class scientists and delegates from around the globe since its
inception in 1981. The Indo-Pacific is the largest marine biogeographic
area on the planet, spanning an area from South-Africa to Mexico, and
providing habitat for many thousands of fish species.

David Lecchini, Chairman of the IPFC10 :* "Today, with all of the threats
that our planet’s ecosystems must deal with, from the North pole to the
South, our tropical forests, coral reefs, and everything in-between, I
think we must focus the 2017 IPFC on the Biology, Traditional Skills and
Management of Fish Stocks in the Indo-Pacific : What measures have to be
taken to combat climate change?.*

*During the 10th IPFC, we will explore this theme through the context of
science, people, economy, culture and we will do this using an
interdisciplinary approach.*

*The 10th IPFC will provide a platform for scientists and stakeholders from
around the Indo-Pacific and beyond to gather, to share knowledge, to build
new collaborations and to find new and innovative ways of managing and
ensuring the long-term sustainability of these globally important fish
