Wisconsion Chapter AFS - Membership

Membership in the Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin.

Active membership in the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Fisheries Society will provide many opportunities to advance your growth as a fisheries professional and allow you a greater voice in shaping the future of Wisconsin fisheries.

The award winning newsletter and the ability to network with other fisheries and aquatic resource professionals from government, academia, fish culture and the private sector will keep you abreast of all the latest techniques and issues.

You do not have to join the parent society to be a Wisconsin Chapter member and the annual $10.00 membership fee is an unbelievable bargain.
