The AFS Genetics Section Hall of Excellence recognizes professionals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of management or conservation of aquatic species and ecosystems through the application of genetics tools, techniques, or theory. Up to three inductees are entered into the Hall of Excellence per year. For our inaugural year in 2014, Fred Allendorf, John Avise, Fred Utter, and Jim Wright were inducted at the Annual Meeting in Quebec City.
