Annual Meeting


Communication, Brokers in Information

Seaside, Oregon March 1 – 4, 2016

Welcome 2016 ORAFS Annual Meeting Attendees!

The 2016 Annual Meeting marks the 52nd anniversary of the Oregon Chapter. “COMMUNICATION, BROKERS IN INFORMATION” is the theme of the program.  The vision of the meeting is to:

  1. dissolve barriers among the many disciplines in fisheries science;
  2. increase exposure of fisheries professionals to each presenter’s work; and
  3. increase exposure of meeting attendees to topics outside of their comfort zone.


The annual meeting will showcase our Chapter’s communication through passionate, thought-provoking plenary speakers, workshops that will hone your biological and technical skills, technical sessions and posters that will entice the mind, trade show vendors that provide us with the latest tools to answer the hard questions of today, student-mentor events to inspire the next generation, and of course our legendary networking social events that tie us all together.
