Annual Conference
AFS: Cal-Neva Chapter
Challenges.  Collaboration.  Solutions.
The 48th Annual Cal-Neva Chapter Conference is devoted to the Challenges faced, Collaborations required and Solutions in process surrounding fisheries conservation.  This year's conference will showcase scientists with expertise in both fisheries science and regulatory policies, with the objective of  informing attendees about their role in improving conservation and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems.  Specifically, attendees will have the opportunity to examine their roles as leaders, followers, team members, and advocates.

Sessions exploring the work of active AFS members, as well as non-members, will be organized based on topics as they contribute to achieving the
mission of the AFS.
