Greetings from Tampa, Florida! The American Fisheries Society and the Florida Chapter are excited to host the 147th AFS Annual Meeting at the Tampa Convention Center from August 20–24, 2017. Tampa will be an attractive venue to unveil this year’s conference theme, “Fisheries Ecosystems: Uplands to Oceans.” We foresee a wide range of sessions that span interdisciplinary research and management approaches to improve aquatic resources.
