Abstract submission for the upcoming Summer meeting is open! Oral presentations abstracts can be submitted HERE. Abstracts must be 250 words or less, and the title and authors must be specified. Submission deadline is 17:00 Friday, May 17, 2019.
Our Keynote speaker will be Todd Richards, the MA Division of Fish & Wildlife Assistant Director of Fisheries. His presentation, “Putting freshwater fisheries data to work”, will focus on current examples of how data, something every biologist wants to collect, can be put to use in everyday fisheries management decisions in order to protect and manage fisheries resources. The data are only useful, however, if we have invested thought in how to put the data to work. Current projects like wild trout management, climate change resiliency, coldwater refugia, warm water fisheries management, and recreational mapping will be highlighted as well as the mandate of MassWildlife.
