Remember AFS on Giving Tuesday

Every year people around the world designate a donation day. It’s called “Giving Tuesday.” It’s your chance to think about the organizations you care about and how much more they might be able to do with a gift from you. At the American Fisheries Society, we’re proud of the work we do together to advance the fisheries profession. Together we’re a part of a vibrant community that includes more than 8,000 fisheries professionals, scientists, and decision makers from around the world.

AFS takes our role in this community seriously and is thrilled to serve our field through convening Annual Meetings, hosting continuing education, publishing five of the world’s leading fisheries journals and a monthly magazine, and much more! This important work takes resources—both in hours of time and dollars. We value the contributions you make, and we’re making it easier for you to support AFS.
