History of the Malacological Activities in Turkey

The first activity on the molluscs was “1st National Malacology Congress with International Participation” organized by Ege University, Faculty of Fisheries on September 1-4, 2004 in Izmir. Later on, the second meeting with the same title was held on September 9-11, 2008 in Adana organized by Çukurova University Faculty of Fisheries. In the following years, the continuity of the organization could not be ensured due to some organizational difficulties and a break was taken for a while. Next year, on October 7-9 will be organized the third one under the title “ International Malacology Symposium” in Bodrum as a joint organization of Ege University, Faculty of Fisheries and Bodrum Maritime Museum.
