Vendors & Tradeshow

We invite you to become a sponsor of the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Western Division of the American Fisheries Society!

Comprising over 4,000 fisheries professionals in the western United States, Canada, and Mexico, the Western Division AFS is a vigorous proponent of good science and wise conservation and management of our aquatic natural resources.  Our members include scientists, consultants, and resource managers from state, federal, academic, private, and non-profit organizations across the West.  The annual meeting of the Western Division provides a welcome opportunity for our members and others to come together to share their research and management results, exchange ideas, and learn about recent developments in fisheries methods, tools, and equipment.

The theme of the meeting is “Change and Continuity: Celebrating 50 years of Fisheries in the West.”  To top it off, 2017 will be the Montana AFS Chapter’s 50th anniversary! In addition to an outstanding technical program, we have planned many special events in Big Sky Country to celebrate the legacy of those who have gone before us, and those who carry the fisheries profession forward.  We expect over 500 people to attend the meeting.

If you have sponsored one of our meetings in the past; we thank you.  If you haven’t, this is a wonderful opportunity to support AFS’s conservation and education goals, and network with the professional fisheries community.
