Emerging Technology Committee

The ad hoc Emerging Technology (ET) Committee provides strategic support and technical guidance for those who are pursuing either the development of new fish passage and intake protection technologies or the use of existing technologies in unusual and innovative conditions (e.g., as fish collection devices or as barriers to fish passage). The committee accomplishes this by assisting innovators, reviewing concepts, fostering communication, providing a forum for highlighting new technologies, and identifying potential funding sources. The committee began operation in 2007 and has quarterly (seasonal) meetings by conference call except during the AFS Annual Meeting when the committee meets in person. The Committee organizes and implements, when needed, a technical session at the AFS Annual Meeting during which time technology innovators will be provided an opportunity to present their ideas to the AFS membership and conference attendees. For additional information on this committee, contact Chairman Jon Black, Phone 508-829-6000, Ext 6431, and Email: .
