Welcome to the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Western Division

 

Change and Continuity: Celebrating 50 years of Fisheries in the West

 

Welcome to Big Sky Country! The Montana Chapter is proud to welcome you as we host the 2017 Western Division Meeting “Change and Continuity: Celebrating 50 years of Fisheries in the West.”  The 42nd annual meeting will be held May 22 – 25th 2017 in historic Missoula, Montana. Located in western Montana, Missoula is a vibrant, active, and scenic setting, and a river really does run through it.  The rich cultural and natural history of the region has inspired the conservation and management of fisheries for decades, guaranteed to infuse the range of work you’ll see presented in Missoula.

This meeting will mark the Montana Chapter’s 50th anniversary, when we will celebrate a half-century of exceptional science, stewardship, and dedication to the aquatic resources our members hold dear.  Please consider being part of this unique experience by organizing a symposium, workshop, or contributing to one.
