Welcome to Georgia AFS
The Georgia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society (GA-AFS) was formed in 1986. Prior to that time, fisheries professional in Georgia were organized as the Georgia Fisheries Workers Association (GFWA). GA-AFS, like the GWFA before it, is the premiere fisheries professional organization in the State of Georgia.
With over 100 members annually, GA-AFS is dedicated to the promotion of sound fisheries science and development of our fisheries professionals. Our members come from throughout the Southeast, ranging from natural resource managers, aquaculturists, researchers, conservationists, and numerous biological disciplines; and representing state and federal government, academia, private consulting, industry, and recreational fishing interests. Together, we work towards the common goal of improving the fish and aquatic resources of Georgia.
The Georgia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society will be hosting the 2015 Southern Division AFS Spring Meeting in Savannah, GA from Jan 28 - Feb 1, 2015. Visit the 2015 SDAFS Meeting website to receive the most up-to-date information.
