The Texas A&M Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is a professional organization of individuals interested in maintaining high standards for the fisheries profession by insuring that the undergraduate and graduate members of our chapter are prepared for careers in fisheries ecology, fisheries management, aquaculture, genetics, and the human dimensions of fisheries.
The Texas A&M Chapter of the American Fisheries Society focuses on several things: experience, involvement, and service. We try to provide students with knowledge, skills, and abilities that will make them in demand in the fields related to aquatic biology. To this end, the TAMU AFS makes available opportunities such as training and certification in a variety of fields from fish identification to small motor repair; volunteering in local, regional, and state public extension programs for aquatic sciences and conservation; introduction to and involvement with fisheries professionals and graduate programs; internship opportunities; pairing undergraduate students with graduate students with research opportunities; and much more. AFS is at this time working on becoming as involved as possible in as many outreach programs as we can, so even if you are only interested in one or two programs, it is a great time to be a member and a great place to learn about what’s going on in the aquatic ecology world.
The Texas A&M University Chapter of The Wildlife Society serves as a technical guide organization for students with a genuine interest in wildlife and fisheries sciences. Society events and meeting encourage communication between members, and professionals to create an atmosphere where understanding of the resource management sciences can be improved. Our society takes the students’ interests to heart and provides information and links to vital new opportunities involving wildlife conservation, research, and management.
As a member of the Student Chapter, students can look forward to countless opportunities to gain invaluable experience in the field, while networking with leaders in conservation.
The Texas A&M student chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology is dedicated to educating students and the community about the conservation and preservation of ecosystems and organisms all over the world. We hold meetings once a month where we come together to plan events, such as workshops, socials, and community activities, discuss current issues, learn from guest lecturers, and much, much more.
Development of leadership and professional skills and scholarly excellence among the Society’s members who are in the early stages of their careers shall be among the Society’s highest priorities.
