Science and Conservation of Fish Aggregations (SCRFA)

Member Type: 
Non Governmental Organization

Science and Conservation of Fish Aggregations, (formerly Society for the Conservation of Reef Fish Aggregations), was formed in 2000 to raise awareness about the vulnerability of fish aggregations (with a key focus on spawning aggregations) and work towards their better protection and management.

We work through participation in the scientific, conservation and resource management communities, producing a diverse range of printed and visual materials, participation in workshops, international meetings, committees and other relevant forums. SCRFA has a Board of 6 Directors based in Hong Kong, Australia, USA, Italy and US Virgin Islands. It has a distribution list of over 300 biologists, conservationists, fishery managers, educators, fishers and communicators.

SCRFA strives to promote and facilitate conservation and management of fish aggregations, with a focus on spawning aggregations. Activities range from documentation of aggregation status and history, synopses and development of methods suitable for documenting, assessing and monitoring aggregations and aggregating species, conservation and management policy, biological information, and education and awareness-raising.
