American Fisheries Society Student Chapter
The New Mexico Student Subunit of the American Fisheries Society is an organization of undergraduate and graduate students interested in fisheries management, ecology, and conservation. We operate under the Arizona/New Mexico Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.
The objectives of the American Fisheries Society are:
A. promote the conservation, development, and wise use of the fisheries;
B. promote and evaluate the development and advancement of all branches of fisheries science and practice;
C. gather and disseminate to Society members and the general public scientific, technical, and other information about fisheries science and practice through publications, meetings, and other forms of communication; and
D. encourage the teaching of fisheries science and practice in colleges and universities and the continuing education and development of fisheries professionals.
