The NY Chapter and Northeast Division of the American Fisheries Society are pleased to announce the 2019 program to be held February 6-8th, 2019 at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Our plenary theme, Fish on the Move, will explore new understanding of “traditional” movement ecology (e.g., diadromy), climate change-induced shifts in species ranges, as well as movements of invasive species. Additionally, this session will consider consequences of these movements on human communities. Our invited speakers are:

David Secor, University of Maryland, author of Ecology of Marine Fish Migrations;
Janet Nye, Stony Brook University, expert on climate-induced range shifts in North Atlantic fishes;
Kathy Mills, Gulf of Maine Research Institute, expert on how coastal communities adapt to climate-induced changes in fisheries;
James Gilmore, Director, Division of Marine Resources, NYSDEC and Chair of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission;
Chris Bowser, Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve, the genius behind the citizen science-based Hudson River glass eel monitoring program.

They will be joined by John Waldman, CUNY Queens College, who will moderate a panel discussion.

Keep the Hudson River flowing!
