6th International Workshop on the Biology of Fish Gametes

Between September 4-7, 2017 we had the pleasure of attending the 6th International Workshop on the Biology of Fish Gametes in České Budějovice and Vodňany, Czech Republic. After 10 years, the workshop has returned to the institution where it had its beginnings. During the meeting, topics related to gametogenesis, gamete and germ cell biology, quality, preservation and omics were discussed. Oral presentations were given by Ákos, Jelena, Gergő, Eszti, Zoran and Timi, while posters were presented by Ákos and Zoran. In addition to these, Ákos also gave a plenary lecture on fish gamete and germ cell preservation. We are especially proud of Zoran who received a prize for the best student oral presentation. Overall, the workshop was a wonderful professional, scientific and social experience, a good opportunity to meet old colleagues and friends and to form new partnerships. We sincerely wish to thank the organizers, Martin, Klára, Míša and all others for the flawless professional work and friendly atmosphere. We are also looking forward to the next meeting in 2019 that will be organized by Catherine Labbé, Julien Bobe and their colleagues in Rennes, France.
