Looking for a way to get more involved? FITS wants you!
The Fisheries Information and Technology Section works to connect fisheries scientists with the solutions they need for fisheries research and management.
- Center for Fisheries Technology and Collaboration Committee – This committee will work to establish an environment both at the Annual Meeting and online where scientists can find tech solutions they are looking for, learn more about their options, and establish contact with providers of that solution. Contact Rebecca Krogman for more information at email@example.com.
- Conference Planning Committee – This committee will focus on planning special topics revolving around fisheries technology applications for presentation in a meeting symposium, coordination of related workshops, and recruitment of authors for special issue publications. The current effort for AFS 2020 is being led by Daniel Weaver and Paul Venturelli regarding Big Data research challenges and applications (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information).
- Outreach and Communications Committee – Led by Sarah Grasty, this committee works to share information with the Section, Society, and the public by managing the website, newsletters and social media. Contact Sarah Grasty for more information at email@example.com.
You are welcome to join any of these working committees. We welcome new members, students, anyone looking for a chance to be involved. Please contact us today to volunteer!
