Panel Discussion: Scientists currently employing bioelectrical impedance analysis to the management and ecology of fishes will discuss what BIA can provide as well as its greatest limitations.  Important things to consider in developing and applying models, as well as where BIA should go from here will be discussed.  Questions and dialogue with the audience will be encouraged during this (up to) 40 minute slot.
