Chapter Units bring local fisheries scientists together to facilitate communication at the lowest geographic level.

Chapter membership is extremely valuable in bringing together fisheries professionals from the same state, province or other geographic region within a Division, and their annual meetings convey great amounts of information directly relevant to many attendees because of the localized nature of the Chapter.  Chapters are geographically defined units intended to advance the Society’s objectives over more localized areas than Divisions. Chapter boundaries may not cross Division lines, but otherwise they need not follow political boundaries. Chapters may form in areas not covered by existing Divisions.

The AFS currently has 48 Chapters, organized below by Division (along with their respective Student Subunits).
