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

Our Chapter’s mission is to promote conservation, development and wise utilization of our fisheries resources; technological advancement of all branches of fisheries science; and the professional exchange of fisheries information among its members.

Membership dues are only $10 per year.

All memberships are for a calendar year.  New memberships and renewals received January 1 through August 31 are processed for full membership that calendar year.  Those received September 1 or later are processed for full membership beginning January 1 of the following year.

We would also like to encourage your membership in The Society.
