    the American Museum of Natural History and said in 1943 The motto of the IGFA For Ethical Sport and Productive Science may well raise the question what is productive science Ichthyology the science of fishes does not limit itself to the task of identifying naming cataloguing and preserving samples of the thousands of species in the teeming world of fishes however gigantic and thrilling that task may be Nor would this science be complete even if all the desired data relating to food habits time and space of breeding migrations etc of all living species had been gathered and classified card catalogued and micro photographed and filed away in bomb proof vaults For all this is only the material for productive science Ichthyology can only become productive when its material is being studied and analyzed in the quest for better and better answers to the enlarging problems of science as a whole The anglers themselves to whom we owe a great deal of important data are a powerful aid in keeping the science of ichthyology from becoming a dead mass of statistics The IGFA s early contributions to game fish research included the construction of a state of the art marine laboratory by IGFA founder Michael Lerner And by 1952 IGFA had formal relationships with 13 Scientific Institutions as members including Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia Pennsylvania American Museum of Natural History New York New York Asociacion Nacional de Piscicultura y Pesca de Columbia Bogotá Columbia Bermuda government Aquarium and Museum Bermuda Bingham Oceanographic Laboratory Yale University Connecticut British Museum Natural History London England Bureau of Marine Fishes California Division of Fish and Game California California Academy of Sciences San Francisco California Chicago Museum of Natural History Chicago Illinois Istituto Talassografico di Messina Messina Sicily Museum National d Histoire Naturelle Paris France Smithsonian Institution Washington D C United States Fish and Wildlife Service Washington D C Today scientists are learning more and more about the world s aquatic habitats and the fish that inhabit them At the same time anglers are learning more and more about pursuing and catching fish As a result both scientists and anglers are great repositories of ichthyologic information However this information is of limited value as long as scientists only talk to scientists and anglers only talk to anglers The IGFA plays an active role in facilitating information exchange to bridge the gap between anglers and the scientific community so that both may benefit from the data developed by each group One of the primary means of connecting scientists and anglers is through symposia that are specifically designed to achieve synthesis from both audiences In September 1984 the IGFA sponsored the First World Angling Conference held in Cap d Agde France This was the first conference devoted solely to recreational fisheries issues that brought together the angling and scientific community to discuss issues related to the sport The conference was a huge success and attracted 251 registrants from 48 countries It also laid the
