The complex life history strategies of diadromous fishes, using both ocean and freshwater habitats and often crossing political borders makes them particularly vulnerable to anthropogenic activities. The development of successful governance models acceptable to all stakeholders poses a challenge but it remains a priority for sustaining these often-iconic species. This session will present a range of examples of existing multi-user collaborations in the assessment and management of diadromous species from around the world. This would be the starting point for a post-session review describing and discussing the species- or situation-specific challenges and commonalities of multilateral collaborations for diadromous species. Thus the session will leverage the collective knowledge to identify, plan, and initiate select case studies to establish knowledge exchange frameworks to support multilateral collaboration and the conservation of diadromous species.
