Conference Background

The theme of the 48th Annual Conference of the California-Nevada Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is “Challenges. Collaboration. Solutions”. This year's theme is intended to showcase our scientists with their different areas of expertise and knowledge in both fisheries science and regulatory policies to inform the audience about their role to improve the conservation and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems including their role as leaders, followers, team members, and advocates. Sessions are organized by topics that will explore the work of our active members and non-members alike in helping achieve the mission of the AFS.  Please scroll to the bottom of this page to view the tentative schedule. 

Please note: all attendees, including paper and poster presenters, must register.

Pre-Conference Activities - Thursday, March 27, 2014

 We have put together an excellent group of Continuing Education classes on Thursday, March 27th. Classes include a full day session on Applied Genetic Techniques, half day sessions covering CEQA, Section 7 Consultation, and Section 10 and 4(d) Rule issues. In addition, a half day Hatchery Forum will be available for those who sign up early enough. These Continuing Education sessions are designed to help practicing professionals expand and retain their knowledge, and provide a way for students and professionals to learn new subjects. Spaces are still available, so don't miss this great opportunity!  Descriptions of Continuing Education course offerings and the Hatchery Forum have been posted in  www.scribd.com (please see UPDATES at the top of this section).
