THEME & TOPICS

The Asian Fisheries Acoustics Society (AFAS) has successfully organized twelve annual meetings under the umbrella named The International Conference on Underwater Acoustics for Sustainable Fisheries in Asia since it was established in Dalian, China in 2007. The annual meetings have been effectively promoted the dissemination and development of fisheries acoustics in Asia. The twelfth annual meeting of AFAS was held in 13 - 15 November 2018 at Jeju, South Korea. Approximately 100 scientists from 8 countries/regions including Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia, Norway and Indonesia participated in the meeting. The upcoming thirteen annual conference of the AFAS will be held in Keelung, Taiwan from 11 to 13 November 2019. In addition to the conventional sessions, including oral and poster sessions from 11 to 12  November, a first workshop for young researchers and students (for Taiwanese only) will be held in 10th November.

ABOUT KEELUNG

Keelung is located in the northern part of Taiwan with Keelung Islet and Hoping Island as its natural defense and the harbor faces the Pacific Ocean. Keelung is the largest natural port in northern Taiwan with the harbor area reaches deep into downtown. The development of Keelung Harbor is closely related to the business development and scenery of the city. The city is surrounded by mountains with the exception of the harbor reach of Keelung harbor, which is a wind gap. According to statistics calculated in late December 2018, Keelung City has a population of 370,155 people. Looking back into the past, Spain, Holland, and Japan occupied or ruled over Taiwan for different periods of time. Not surprisingly, historic sites left behind by these former conquering countries can still be found here in Keelung. These cultural remnants add to the diversity of this city by the sea and how it embraces different cultures.
