Georgia AFS Membership

Membership in the Georgia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is open to anyone interested in the progress of fisheries science and education in Georgia and the conservation and management of Georgia’s fisheries and aquatic ecosystems.  Our members come from throughout the Southeast, ranging from natural resource managers, aquaculturists, researchers, conservationists, anglers, and numerous biological disciplines; and representing state and federal government, academia, private consulting, industry, and recreational fishing interests.

Our Chapter’s mission is to improve the conservation and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems by advancing fisheries and aquatic science and promoting the development of fisheries professionals.  Your paid membership helps us to support that MISSION.
