The World Council of Fisheries Societies is a non-profit, nongovernmental organisation that currently includes 12 scientific and professional fisheries societies and affiliated organisations world wide. The main aim of the Council is to promote international cooperation in fisheries science, conservation and management by encouraging and promoting sustainable management practices, excellence in fisheries research and the wise use of fishery resources.
