Who We Are and What We Do

The Montana State University Student Subunit of the American Fisheries Society (MSUAFS) is an organization of graduate and undergraduate students who have an interest in fisheries management, science, and ecology.  The MSUAFS operates under the auspice of the Montana Chapter of the American Fisheries Society and promotes the objectives of the American Fisheries Society:

  • Fisheries Conservation
  • Advancement of Fisheries Science 
  • Scientific and Public Outreach
  • Promote Fisheries Education 

The MSUAFS provides opportunities for students to interact with fishery professionals through guest lectures, social events, and volunteer services with various agencies and organization.  Additionally, the MSUAFS exposes students to fishery sampling techniques through field oriented activities and workshops. We hold a meeting on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30 pm in Lewis Hall, Room 407. We also host at least one special event or activity each month. For more information email us at
