Reporting gender ratios of fisheries and marine science events

Welcome to Fishy Biases! We are collecting data on invited speakers, session organizers, and panelists at conferences and seminar series. Here’s how this page works:

  1. Readers submit a report on a fisheries or marine science event.
  2. Once weekly, the authors will post the data from these events to this page.

Please see the About page for more information. Data will be made available to interested researchers who contact us.
