Promoting sound fisheries science,
2015 Annual Meeting
The Michigan Chapter of the American Fisheries Society invites you to participate in their annual meeting.
Bay City DoubleTree in Bay City, MI
This year's theme is “Managing Michigan’s Changing Fisheries Landscape”. Fisheries professionals are increasingly challenged to demonstrate the relevance of their work to a broad audience although most of our training focuses on communication with other scientists. The meeting will kick off with a presentation from Stephanie Ariganello, former newspaper reporter and current small business owner and Communications Coordinator for Michigan Sea Grant.
