This year’s meeting theme is “Changing Tides: Outlook for the Future, Insights from the Past”. It’s safe to say that all of us are feeling pushed around in the waves by events out of our control. Last year we were reminded that we’re in this profession because we all love fish! This year, let’s convene to gain wisdom from career-long fisheries professionals, folks who have spent their lives with fish, and the peoples who have stewarded Alaska’s lands and waters from time immemorial. But, let’s not forget to celebrate the work being done by up-and-coming fisheries professionals while we envision a more inclusive and robust fisheries community in the years to come.
We are looking forward to seeing you, in shared virtual space, at the 2022 meeting.
