A gathering place for Utah’s fisheries professionals

Utah Chapter AFS Annual Meeting SAVE THE DATE Announcement

The Utah AFS Chapter is excited to host our 42nd Annual Meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn in St. George, Utah from February 25 to 27th, 2020.  Our Excom decided to pursue a sponsorship with the Virgin River Program to co-host a Virgin River symposium as part of our annual meeting.  Our goal for this full day symposium will be to bring in folks that work on the Virgin River in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada to talk about progress and issues in fisheries management in the Virgin River system.

In addition to the Virgin River session, we are planning on holding themed sessions including a Fish Passages, Screens, and Barriers session and an Innovative Techniques session.  If you have other ideas on themed sessions for the 2020 meeting, please let me know this fall.  As always, we’ll have plenty of room for general contributed papers.

Please mark your calendars so you don’t miss our 2020 Chapter Meeting!
