This year’s theme “Connecting the Mosaic” can mean so many things. With the 2023 annual meeting located on the ocean, incoming President and Planning Committee Chair, Miranda Bell-Tilcock, wants to connect the idea of how fish need a diverse habitat mosaic such as from freshwater to estuary and/or the ocean. But fish are not the only ones in need of diversity. We need a diverse set of voices in fisheries as well to confront the many challenges that fish are facing today. Connecting the mosaic is all about connecting with people of diverse backgrounds in order to connect the fish to their conservation needs.
