The 142nd Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society will have an exciting program that is sure to interest fisheries professionals from across the continent and the world. Forty four symposia will cover a great diversity of topics with several focused on Great Lakes issues. An additional 299 contributed papers will offer attendees a further opportunity to hear stimulating presentations on a wide range of current issues and research findings. In addition, 173 posters will be available for viewing in the Exhibition Hall (Poster Floor Layout) and authors (Poster List by Author) will be available at the formal Poster Session during the Trade Show on Monday.
A Personal Scheduler is available to select the presentations you would like to attend by first reviewing the titles and abstracts online, then customizing your own personal schedule – a great way to stay Green!
In addition, a searchable listing of all program offerings is available at: Complete Program (online).
Please don’t hesitate to contact the Program Committee and we look forward to seeing you in St. Paul!
