The Alabama Fisheries Association
2016 Annual Meeting

will be held March 2-3, 2016. We are changing things up this year and are excited to host this meeting at a scenic and secluded location — Cahaba Outfitters in Helena, AL.
In addition, AFA is providing more practical learning opportunities by conducting field demonstrations on site. AFA is also implementing a new session which should be very informative for students and professionals called “Aquatic Science Academics, Agencies, and Careers”. This session will provide an overview of the duties and opportunities available with the aquatic related entities throughout Alabama!

The meeting will also include door prizes, raffles, meals, and a Bonfire Crawfish Banquet featuring Over the Mountain bluegrass band. Once again, continuing education credits for Commercial Pesticide Applicators, Foresters, and Loggers will be available. Students are encouraged to apply for the J. Malcolm Pierson Undergraduate Meeting Support Scholarship for free registration and lodging. The David Bayne Scholarship Award is also available for one winning graduate student presenter ($500). Registration will be open soon, so mark your calendars! Please email board.afa@gmail.com with any questions!
We look forward to seeing you in March!
