Abstract submission for presentations and posters for the March 2017 Alaska Chapter – American Fisheries Society (AFS) and American Water Resources Association joint meeting is now open. Interested presenters may submit their information online here.

Abstracts are due February 10th. More information on the meeting and registration will be at the Alaska Chapter-AFS website

This year’s theme is “Alaskan Fisheries and Waters: Success, limitation and innovation in the face of data scarcity and uncertainty.”

According to the AF – Alaska website, the theme was chosen “to highlight the challenges and innovative solutions surrounding conservation and management of fisheries and water resources in Alaska. Researchers, managers, and stakeholders are often forced to make decisions with little to no information due to the State’s expansiveness, weather conditions, and logistical challenges of collecting data or utilizing its resources. We want to recognize these challenges and the innovative solutions that continue to be developed to maintain Alaska’s freshwater and marine resources.”
