The ICES Working Group on Fisheries Acoustics, Science and Technology (WGFAST) is the only international forum where individuals working in fisheries acoustics can network to discuss ongoing developments in the technique. As such, it has been highly successful, attracting 63 participants from 16 countries to its meeting in Nelson, New Zealand from 4-7 April 2017.

The major themes addressed during the WGFAST meeting included:
• Behaviour;
• Acoustic properties of marine organisms;
• Emerging technologies, methodologies, and protocols; and
• Applications of acoustic methods to characterize ecosystems.
