Hello Fishy Friends, we have a breadth of sessions in the works for 2018. No matter your interest in fisheries, we have you covered. Session topics run the gamut from communicating science, stakeholder engagement, fish habitat, genetics, contaminants, assessment science, novel technology and tagging. Locally trending offerings will include a number of sessions focused on Notheast species and issues including Sturgeon, Eel, Summer Flounder, Horseshoe Crabs, American Shad, wind energy, and more! Thanks to our many session organizers who have stepped up to coordinate this exciting lineup of sessions. You can find a full list of session titles along with session abstracts here, read more about the meeting here, and you can submit your abstract here.  Abstract submission deadline is March 16, 2018.

We look forward to seeing you in August in Atlantic City!
