Fisheries Professionals Look to the Future Under a New Administration
The American Fisheries Society represents fisheries scientists in the United States. This group’s mission is to strengthen the profession, advance science, and conserve fisheries resources. They recently came up with recommendations for the new Presidential Administration. To their knowledge no other group of natural resource professionals has crafted a similar set of recommendations. Some of the topic areas include:
- Effective Fisheries Management,
- Angling and Fisheries Conservation,
- The Need for Advancements in Aquaculture,
- Habitat Protection and Restoration,
- Invasive Species.
