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
  • Promotion of Fisheries Education 
  • Annual Montana Chapter Meeting: As a member of the MSU AFS Subunit admittance to the annual Montana Chapter AFS meeting is offered. 

The MSUAFS provides opportunities for students to interact with fishery professionals through guest lectures, social events, and volunteer services with various agencies and organizations.  Additionally, the MSUAFS exposes students to fishery sampling techniques through field oriented activities and workshops. For any student with an interest in pursuing a career in fisheries, MSUAFS is a great way to start to build the professional skillset and network which can help you maximise your success.

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge and honor, with respect, the Indigenous Nations on whose traditional homelands the University now stands and whose historical and cultural relationships with the land continue to this day. Understanding that our fisheries work takes place upon Indigenous lands, we offer this land acknowledgement in hopes of keeping this legacy in the minds of our members.
