The 2018 Annual Meeting marks the 54th anniversary of the Oregon Chapter American Fisheries Society. The theme of the program is “Research and Management in a Changing Climate.” The vision of the meeting is to:
Discuss the state of climate change science as it relates to fisheries research and management;
Consider how changes in socio-economic or political climates affect how fisheries science is conducted and communicated, particularly with emphasis on the human dimension of management and the role of advocacy;
Explore diverse fisheries sessions, including topics such as: climate science, life history portfolios, diversity and inclusion and films related to fisheries.
Encourage networking between fisheries managers and researchers to promote increased collaboration on research to support adaptive management, and to facilitate data exchange.
