UKFEN is the UK Fisheries Economics Network, a network for economists and analysts working in the seafood industry.

UKFEN was founded by Seafish in early 2011 in order to promote professional exchange between fisheries economists and analysts. The network has many purposes, including:

  • Linking researchers and analysts in academia, government and industry
  • Sharing research plans among members
  • The discussion and prioritisation of current and future research needs
  • Coordination of research proposals and funding applications
  • Debate and resolution of technical issues
  • Communication between analysts and their customers

UKFEN meets regularly. Seafish provides a chair for general meetings, and members are drawn from academia, government, marine laboratories and research institutes. There is no fee for membership, and no obligation to participate in meetings.

Next UKFEN meeting: Wednesday 13th September, London

Economists and analysts interested in joining UKFEN should contact Hazel Curtis. You should also contact Hazel if you would like Seafish to circulate an invitation to tender for a consulting project to all of the commercial members of UKFEN, or to submit items or ideas for discussion by UKFEN.
