Membership is open to any individual,
from any professional background, and from any country. All that is required is an interest in some
aspect of fisheries or aquaculture economics, and the payment of an annual fee. Just print out and
mail or fax the membership application form (please click on the "Application" link in the menu on the left side
of the screen).
Please note that this form should not be e-mailed with any credit card information included! Organizations and

Individual memberships are provided on a calendar year basis. Benefits include the seminnual IIFET Newsletter,
being listed in and having access to the IIFET Membership Directory, discounted registration fees at our conferences,
and membership in the IIFET Electronic List.
Institutional and Corporate members may name up to four representatives who receive all individual membership benefits
mentioned above. They may name additional representatives (over 4) for a reduced price per member (inquire with Secretariat
for details). In addition, they are listed in the institutional member listing in the Membership Directory, may receive the
membership database in mailing label form (on request, for limited use), may receive additional copies of the Newsletter, may
provide information for publication in the Newsletter, and may send enhanced research requests to the electronic list, with
the assistance of the Executive Director. They may also list job openings on our electronic mail list, with priority treatment.
Other benefits to joining IIFET are less tangible but perhaps more important. Joining gives you access to the
only organization which focuses exclusively on fisheries and aquaculture economics issues, in every corner of the
globe. Members find the professional contacts and interaction provided by our activities absolutely invaluable.
Those who are isolated in countries or institutions with few other fisheries economists, as well as those in larger
institutions who seek international contacts, need the peer interaction provided by IIFET. Our academics value the
opportunity to learn from industry members, while government fisheries managers appreciate the opportunities to learn
about research and fisheries outcomes from around the world, all in one place. We actively encourage you to expand and
benefit from our network, by becoming a member. (Please note: If payment of the membership fee provides a serious
obstacle to you, please contact the IIFET Secretariat.)
If you have any questions about IIFET, its goals or activities, please do not hesitate to contact either:
Ann L. Shriver (Executive Director) or Kara Keenan, IIFET Assistant, or call (541) 737-1439.
