Programming Co-Chairs, Cleve Steward and Joe Merz, and their team are preparing an exciting, engaging program for attendees of WDAFS 2016 to enjoy.  We seek presentations and posters on a broad range of topics, including:

  • Scientific approaches to endangered species
  • Habitat management
  • Changing environments
  • Conservation
  • Interactions between science, policy, and society

Sessions will be organized based on topics that explore the work of our active members and non-members alike in helping achieve the mission of the American Fisheries Society and promoting the scientific method in the development of policy and decision making.

Key dates and deadlines are provided below; full details may be found in the Call for Papers.

Online submission is available for symposium proposals and paper/poster abstracts.
