The FSBI Small Research Grants scheme has been running for 25 22 years, after its initiation during the Society’s 25th Anniversary in 1992, whereas the Wyn Wheeler Grant for retired researchers was started during the 40th Anniversary year. Over this time some £560 000 has been awarded to researchers, and it is argued that this has had a disproportionately positive contribution on fish research and researchers as evidenced by journal articles produced as a result of initial FSBI funding and the career trajectories of some recipients. These grants also reflect the international reach of the Society, and the increasing involvement of female researchers in fish research.
