The Michigan Chapter of the American Fisheries Society (MIAFS) is holding its annual meeting and conference in conjunction with the 76th Annual Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference (MWFWC) in Grand Rapids, Michigan from January 24-27, 2016. As part of the MWFWC, MIAFS is sponsoring a symposium titled “Legends and Legacies of Michigan’s Fishery Research and Management Heritage” which will serve as a venue for our annual chapter meeting presentations, as well as showcase the rich and diverse history of fisheries research and management in the Great Lakes state. A key aspect to this symposium will be featured presentations on the roles, accomplishments, and perspectives of the various state, federal, and tribal fisheries agencies and research universities in Michigan. These presentations will provide both historic and futuristic perspectives on roles, goals, and contributions to Michigan’s rich fisheries legacy.
