The Freshwater Biological Association (FBA) has for over 85 years promoted the sustainable management of fresh waters using the best available science and information.
The theme of our 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting is ‘enhancing natural catchment processes and services' and the programme will explore why sound evidence and underpinning science is fundamental to the understanding and management of catchments including flooding events.

FBA, Dorset Wildlife Trust and Bournemouth University are holding an event to showcase the tiny but vital organisms that live in the wetland of East Stoke Fen nature reserve near Wool.
This wetland is home to a huge range of 'microbeasts' which are invisible to the naked eye, but are the basis of the food chain, providing food for the initial stages of fish and other aquatic life. 100 species of microbeasts, most of which have not been recorded anywhere else in the UK, have been discovered at East Stoke Fen nature reserve.
Professor Genoveva Esteban from Bournemouth University, who is based at the FBA's River Laboratory, said, "East Stoke Fen is a hot-spot of microbial biodiversity. Fen ponds support a large biological diversity that makes them fundamental in safeguarding local and national biodiversity".
