American Fisheries Society 139th Annual Meeting

Event Date: 
August 30, 2009 to September 3, 2009

The theme of this year's meeting is “Diversity, the foundation of fisheries and the American Fisheries Society; are we gaining ground?”

Tennessee has some of the most diverse aquatic habitats and critters on the continent. From high mountain streams in east Tennessee to the Mississippi River delta in the western part of the State, it is home to over 315 species of fish, 120 species of mussels, and 77 species of crayfish.

Sessions will cover commercial fisheries issues such as bycatch reduction, recreational fishing issues, endangered species, climate change, international policy and new fisheries science technologies in genetics, tagging and tracking of fish.
