Organized by the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF)
IOSF is planning to establish a Working Group with otter scientists and representatives of the fishery community, including fisheries trusts, fish farmers, koi carp keepers and anglers. The aim is that this Group can work together to provide accurate information on otters and their impact on fisheries and also to provide practical advice and solutions to problems.
To bring this Group together IOSF will be holding a one day conference in Edinburgh with delegates from all interested parties and those with experience in otter mitigation at fisheries from the UK and Europe. At the end of the conference, representatives will be invited on to the Working Group and recommendations will be drawn up for further work to be carried out by the Group based on co-operation between otter scientists and fisheries. Proceedings will be produced for distribution to delegates but they will also be made available through the IOSF website for the wider public and through various fishery websites.
