New Frontiers in Fisheries Management and Ecology:
Leading the Way in a Changing World
I am pleased to extend a heartfelt, personal welcome to all attending the 141st Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society. It was 58 years ago in 1954 when the Society last met in Seattle and that is way too long. The Pacific Northwest offers a beautiful setting with tremendous opportunities for touring, sightseeing, and many fishing opportunities. The City of Seattle is extremely attractive and the people are quite friendly. The Seattle Convention Center is a large, modern facility that can easily accommodate the record number of attendees, probably the largest number ever to attend an AFS meeting. What a place to spend a few days, learn the latest developments in our profession, do the business of our Society, and have a good time!
