AFS-American-Fisheries-Society-Member-Patrick-Cooney-150x150THE REASON I JOINED AFS: “Every graduate student position and job on my resume is a direct result of being a member of AFS. I met Dr. Mike Allen from University of Florida through the AFS job page, Dr. Tom Kwak from North Carolina State University at an AFS meeting in Oklahoma City, my colleagues at The Fisheries Blog through the AFS student writing contest, and Smith-Root at AFS Trade Shows. Those opportunities would not have happened if I were not a member of AFS.” Patrick Cooney, Certified Fisheries Scientist & Author and Co-founder of The Fisheries Blog.
