First Joint Meeting between SNEC and NED

This year marks the 50th year of the Southern New England Chapter (SNEC) of the American Fisheries Society.

Please join us in celebrating with the first joint meeting between SNEC and the Northeastern Division (NED). This meeting will serve as the 2017 divisional AFS meeting. Chapters should plan on sending their presidents (or delegates) for the annual in-person ExComm meeting/dinner.

This event will include two half-day workshops (both on Sunday afternoon), two days of presentations including a plenary program, contributed presentations and a keynote address. SNEC and NED will combine forces to judge student presentations and will award outstanding talks and posters. The NED and SNEC Annual Business Meetings will happen too (not back to back- don’t worry), and of course a private birthday party at Mystic Aquarium! The Mystic Hilton is adjacent to and just a short walk from the Aquarium and several quality dining options.

The theme of the meeting is SNEC at 50: Past, Present, and Future of our Fisheries.

Abstract deadline has now passed.
