UW American Fisheries Society Mtg

UW American Fisheries Society Meeting
May 10th, 2010
Anderson Hall 207 (Forest Club room)
4:00 pm

The American Fisheries Society is a professional society for fisheries biologists and aquatic ecologists, which hosts state, regional, and national scientific meetings, publishes journals in the aquatic sciences, and facilitates career development of young biologists through student units and their activities.

The University of Washington has just restored its student unit in the past year, and is looking to expand membership and increase involvement among University of Washington undergraduate and graduate students. In particular, AFS at UW is currently looking to expand participation from the many students doing work in aquatic sciences outside of the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences by hosting a meeting and social in Anderson Hall 207 (the Forest Club room) starting at 4 pm on Monday, May 10th.

Please join us for a brief introduction of the American Fisheries Society and its mission, a review of past and future planned activities of the UW student unit, and three short (5 minute) presentations of fisheries and aquatic sciences research conducted by students at the School of Forest Resources (Aaron Ruesch, Katie Murray, James Starr). These speed presentations are intended to represent the breadth and diversity of fisheries and aquatic ecology research being conducted at SFR. The meeting will be followed by a short social with food and beverages. This meeting should be a great opportunity for fisheries students in different schools (SAFS, SFR) to meet, network, and get involved in our professional society.

Thanks, and hope to see you there,
Eric Larson, UW AFS Vice President
