Each year, the Cal-Neva AFS Chapter awards individuals and entities for their professional achievement, service, and contributions to fisheries science, management, and conservation.
Please consider nominating an individual or group for one of the Cal-Neva Chapter AFS Awards. We welcome nominations for any individuals or groups that you feel are worthy of recognition in the categories listed here.
To nominate an individual or group for one of the Chapter’s awards listed below, please provide a 5 – 7 sentence summary of the nominee’s accomplishments. Please specify which award you think is best fit for your nominee and why. Please send your nominations to the Cal-Neva AFS email address: [email protected] by January 16th, 2023 at 11:59 PST.
The accomplishments of the award recipients will be highlighted in the Cal-Neva AFS newsletter, and they will be publicly recognized at the virtual 2023 Cal-Neva Chapter of American Fisheries Society Conference. Award recipients are encouraged, but not required, to attend the meeting.
