Members of the International Fisheries Section of the American Fisheries Society are an extremely diverse group, representing many fisheries disciplines and nations. We have common interests in the biology, management, and conservation of fisheries on a global scale and promote the interaction of fisheries and aquatic science professionals worldwide. There are several steps to effectively work internationally, and we believe that some of the best preparations include learning another language; learning to appreciate the cultures where that language is spoken; participating in international research projects, workshops, and symposia; and remaining in contact with international colleagues via electronic media. Many international projects start from previous contacts made at conferences, during which a sense of common interest and personal trust is built (e.g., Hughes and Kaufmann 2014). Other opportunities may arise from consultancies and internationally funded projects obtained via a bidding process.
