WELCOME

Welcome!

The Local Organising Committee is delighted to welcome you to Seattle for the 5th International Conference on Integrative Salmonid Biology (ICISB) from the 11th to the 14th March 2024. We look forward to sharing and discussing recent findings with a vibrant salmonid research community. ICISB 2024 is funded by the International Cooperation to Sequence the Atlantic Salmon Genome (ICSASG) supported by Genome British Columbia, The Chilean Economic Development Agency, InnovaChile Committee, The Research Council of Norway and The Norwegian Fishery and Aquaculture Industy Research Fund.

It is an exciting time to be researching salmonid species, with abundant and increasing genome resources for many species, and the era of genome re-sequencing to understand economically and evolutionarily important traits. These and other genomic tools have enabled great leaps in our fundamental understanding of salmonid biology, in addition to many applications in aquaculture and conservation. A full breath of the most recent and exciting research findings in salmon genomics are showcased in the programme, including speakers ranging from established field leaders, to early career researchers and graduate students working on their first research project.

We look forward to seeing you in the vibrant city of Seattle next year!
