March for Science

Science is foundational to the American Fisheries Society (AFS) and we strongly support scientific research, science application to management and policy, and the science education of our members and of society. The March for Science, set for April 22, in Washington, D.C., and in various locations around the world, is a non-political event that will stress the importance of science to humanity and the role science has to play in informing governmental policy. AFS supports its members expressing their right to speak out on behalf of science and exercise that right through joining the March for Science.
