Welcome to Tampa 2017!

On behalf of the 2017 AFS Meeting Planning Committee, we extend a warm welcome to the participants

of the 147th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society—WELCOME TO TAMPA!!! We have been planning for this meeting for over four years and have put a lot of heart into it. We expect that everyone attending will have a great time, learn new things, network with colleagues, reconnect with old friends, and have an overall fantastic experience. The last time that Florida hosted the Annual AFS Meeting was in 1995, and things have changed quite a bit since then. Besides the significant advances in technology, the area around the Tampa Convention Center has grown with the addition of new hotels, restaurants, museums, parks, and stores. One thing that hasn’t changed is the amount of preparation involved and the anticipated quality of the meeting. We have a lineup of 74 symposia, over 200 posters, more than 1,100 presentations, a Student Networking Event at the Lowry Park Zoo, and a Grand Networking Event at the Florida Aquarium. Our Tradeshow will have at least 90 full booths with vendors and agency representatives ready to meet you and discuss what they have to offer. We have also scheduled a cooking demonstration and tasting session at the Tradeshow on Tuesday, which will include some of Florida’s invasive, native, and farm-raised species. While you are here, we encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities that the Sunshine State has to offer, including our beautiful beaches and the best fishing opportunities you can find. After all, Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World! Also, don’t forget about the solar eclipse that will occur on Monday, August 21st. The peak time for our area is 2:49 pm, when 85% of the sun will be hidden from view. As a convenience, our Program Committee scheduled a break during this rare celestial event. We know that you will have an excellent experience, and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please connect with one of our Local Planning Committee members!

American Fisheries Society 147th Annual Meeting

Florida Chapter Welcome

Welcome AFS members to the 147th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society in Tampa, Florida.

The Florida Chapter has done a great job collaborating with the parent society to plan what should be an outstanding meeting. This meeting provides an opportunity to meet new people, rekindle old friendships, and exchange information in the field of fisheries science. This meeting features numerous opportunities to network and collaborate with fellow colleagues. With 74 symposia and more than 1,100 presentations, there promises to be something to learn for everyone. We also have an exciting line-up of daytime workshops and nightly social events. The Silent Auction/Raffle is sure to draw a lot of attention with an estimated $20,000 in raffle items and vacation getaways up for grabs. The AFS Business meeting is scheduled from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM on August 23rd. Be sure to check the schedule for the date, time, and location of all other events. On behalf of the Florida Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, welcome to Tampa and enjoy the meeting!

AFS President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 147th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society in Tampa. All members of the

arrangements and program committees have done a fantastic job in putting this meeting together. I hope you will join me in thanking each of them personally as you see them around the various venues. They have made a huge contribution in energy and time to make this meeting a great event. I attended my first AFS meeting in New York City in 1970, which happened to be the society’s 100th anniversary. I went to a few meetings in the 1970s, but I haven’t missed a meeting since 1979. Simple math says that this is my 37th annual meeting in a row. I can tell you from personal experience that, while the presentations are excellent, it is the opportunity to create and maintain a personal network of professional fisheries biologists that is the most lasting and important thing that you will do here in Tampa. I hope you enjoy and make the most of this opportunity just as much as I have enjoyed each and every one of the AFS meetings I have attended over the years.

INFORMATION BOOTH If you have questions about the meeting, or Tampa in general, the Information Booth is a great source. The Information Booth will be located near the Registration Desk at the Tampa Marriott Waterside on Saturday and Sunday, and next to the Registration Desk in front of West Hall at the Convention Center from Monday to Thursday. The Tampa Visitors Bureau and Convention Center will also have an information booth at the Convention Center for additional help. INTERNET ACCESS Internet Access is available free of charge in the common area of the Convention Center, in front of West Hall on the 2nd floor. Internet access in the Tradeshow will only be available from the laptops provided at the Cyber Cafe. AFS has contracted with the Conference Exchange (CONFEX) for program and scheduling support. CONFEX provides and maintains a complete searchable program listing on the meeting website (https://afs.confex.com/ afs/2017/meetingapp.cgi/Home/0). Because of the size of the program, and in an effort to minimize our environmental impact, only the scheduling information is provided in this program guide. Abstracts for all oral presentations and posters and the full list of authors are included online as well as on the AFS Annual Meetings mobile app. The Program Committee will update the program listing throughout the meeting as changes occur. 8

Our attendees can also use the AFS Annual Meetings mobile app by Core-apps to view and schedule all other meeting activities on their laptops, tablets, or Apple and Android mobile phones. From the mobile app you can browse and select the workshops, meetings, and events that you plan to attend. The AFS Annual Meetings mobile app can be downloaded to your phone from Google Play or the Apple Store; simply search for “AFS Annual Meetings” to find the app. Once downloaded, you will not need Internet service to access the app. Please refer to the page opposite the Table of Contents for more details. INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRESENTERS AND MODERATORS The AV Loading Room is located in Room 1 of the Convention Center. Presenters should be aware that talks are to last 15 minutes, with the remaining 5 minutes allocated to questions and for room changes (total of 20 minutes). Moderators are responsible for ensuring that talks start and end on time. Detailed instructions for moderators will be posted on each podium. Computers and projectors are provided in each presentation room. Each room is equipped with a podium, LCD Projector (1024x768), Laptop with pre-loaded oral presentation files, Projection Screen, Laser Pointer, Podium Microphone, and PCDI for Computer Audio. Information about room size can be found on the Tampa Convention Center website: https://www.tampaconventioncenter.com/includes/content/docs/media/ Room-Specifications-FY-2015.pdf Presentations are saved on computers that are set up in each presentation room in the early morning and remain the entire day there: this means all presentations must be loaded no later than the day before your talk. You cannot use your personal computer for presentations.

Instructor: Steve McMullin, McMullin Training and Consulting, LLC This workshop is designed for new and emerging leaders in AFS. It addresses the need for new and emerging leaders to better understand how AFS functions, the roles of Unit leaders in AFS, and how to be an effective leader in an all-volunteer organization such as AFS.

Sunday, August 20, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM NEW! Uncomfortable Conversations: Addressing Unintentional Bias in the Fisheries Profession – FREE! The Equal Opportunities Section of AFS is providing a workshop to identify, understand, and create tools to address unintentional bias within AFS and the fisheries profession at-large. Unintentional bias can be defined as the “unconscious mental models we all have about social groups (i.e., favorable or unfavorable attitudes or stereotypes) that affect our unconscious assessment of others.” Understandably, tackling issues related to gender, race, age, culture, and sexual orientation can be uncomfortable conversations to navigate and tend to be avoided. However, for AFS to meaningfully address this issue, these are the uncomfortable conversations that we need to have.

American Fisheries Society 147th Annual Meeting

Plenary Speakers Katsumi Tsukamoto

President of the Japanese Society of Fisheries Science; Professor at Department of Marine Science and Resources, College of Bioresource Sciences, Nihon University

Contributions of Fisheries Science to Society: The Example of Eel Research for Sustainable Use and Conservation Katsumi Tsukamoto has contributed to the field of fish migration through his 40-year career of wide-ranging research on diadromous fishes (ayu, salmon, eels) that migrate between the sea and freshwater. He led his research team to collect freshwater eel eggs in the ocean for the first time in the world and discovered the spawning area of the Japanese eel in the western Pacific, which was highly publicized in Japan. Another contribution of his research activities in recent years is the promotion of eel conservation and sustainable use of eel resources by writing general books, facilitating TV documentaries, giving media interviews, and educating school children. His hope is to increase the number of adult eels migrating back to their spawning area in the future by enlightening the public about eel life history and evoking a societal sentiment to protect eels and their habitats. In his plenary talk, he presents his unique example of how fisheries science can contribute to society by showing actual examples of eel research that may improve understanding eels, resource management plans, aquaculture techniques, and public awareness of eel conservation.

Marah Hardt

Founder of OceanInk; Research, Writing, and Creative Consultant

Sex in the Sea: Turning Science into Stories that Make a Difference A scientist and storyteller, Marah Hardt, Ph.D. works at the crossroads of research, science communication, and strategy to tackle the ocean’s thorniest challenges. Currently research director at Future of Fish, Marah works with innovators to create more sustainable, traceable seafood supply chains. As a writer, Marah focuses on bringing research out of the ivory tower and into the wider world, where the wonders and insights of science can help entertain and inform a more balanced relationship between people and the seas. She has been published in scientific journals, books, and popular magazines. Her first book, Sex in the Sea (St. Martin’s Press, 2016) uniquely links the timeless topic of sex with the timely issue of ocean conservation. She will draw examples from this work to discuss three key elements for turning science into powerful stories that can foster positive change.

Jack Payne

Senior Vice-President for Agricultural and Natural Resources, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida

Stand Up for Science: Sticking to Evidence over Activism, Misinformation, and Death Threats Jack Payne is the senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources at the University of Florida and head of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. UF/IFAS is the discovery and innovation arm of the $148-billion-a-year Florida agriculture and natural resource industries. It also makes the organization the target of those who try to drive decision-making through ideology, profit, or fear. Payne will discuss how today’s public scientists find themselves answering not only to their peers, but to the FBI, activist groups, the Food Babe, and politicians who sometimes disregard science. Payne calls on his colleagues to defend not only their own work but science itself. American Fisheries Society 147th Annual Meeting

American Fisheries Society 147th Annual Meeting

SOCIETY BUSINESS MEETING Wednesday, August 23, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM Convention Center Ballroom B&C The annual AFS Business Meeting will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 PM on Wednesday, August 23 in Ballroom B&C of the Convention Center. The meeting will include reports by President Joe Margraf, Executive Director Doug Austen, and Constitutional Consultant John Boreman; presentation of awards and scholarships; information on plans for the 2018 meeting in Atlantic City, New Jersey; installation of elected officers; and other aspects of Society business. Be sure to attend this meeting to honor award and scholarship recipients, and to hear plans for the upcoming year from incoming President Steve McMullin.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES Students play a vital role in the American Fisheries Society, representing future professionals responsible for conservation of our aquatic resources around the world. Students are encouraged to participate in these events to get the most out of their AFS 2017 Annual Meeting experience.

Best Student Paper and Poster Symposia The Best Student Paper Symposium will be held on Monday, August 21 from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM in Room 7 of the Convention Center. The Best Student Poster Symposium will be held on Monday, August 21 during the Poster Social from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM. Award recipients will be announced at the AFS Business Meeting on Wednesday, August 23.

Student Mentoring Event: Making yourself stand out in hyper-competitive job markets, using Florida as a case study Tuesday, August 22, 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM Tampa Convention Center, Room 30B On average, hiring committees receive over 70 applications per entry level technician job posting in Florida. Under these circumstances, getting a job as an early career scientist is seemingly impossible. This mentoring event will provide a venue for students to ask professionals that are hiring fisheries biologists what they need to do to improve their chances at getting a job in this hyper-competitive market. The first half of the event will be a panel discussion, where students can ask professionals questions regarding interviews, resumes, and most importantly how to best position yourself for long-term employment. Panelists will include eight scientists from academic, state and federal agencies, and not-for-profit organizations in Florida. The panel discussion will last for 45 minutes, where students are free to ask employment questions from this group. Immediately following the panel discussion, we will transition to a speed mentoring session. Here the students can interface in a small group (5-6 students per mentor) with the panelists to seek advice about how to improve your chances of getting a job in fisheries science. The speed mentoring session will allow students to ask panelists questions in a less public, more personal setting, as well as provide a venue for more in-depth discussion. Mentors are assigned to tables and students will seat themselves. At the end of ten minutes, students will switch tables. We will run the event for 50 minutes (5, 10 minute sessions).

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS From world renowned fishing and beaches to family-friendly theme parks, welcome to Tampa: a vibrant cultural scene with shopping, dining, and nightlife, there’s something for everyone here! Explore local waterways on a standup paddleboard right in front of the convention center! Or take a short walk along the waterfront to visit art and history museums, a children’s museum, the performing arts center, and The Florida Aquarium. Looking for ways to play in, on, or around the water? Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World and Tampa Bay is home to Spotted Seatrout, Common Snook, Sheepshead, Tarpon, Red Drum, Gray Snapper and more! Or take a peaceful paddle trip on the beautiful Hillsboro River. The Tampa area is also home to three of the country’s top 10 beaches. Take the youngest members of the family to the Glazer Children’s Museum—just a short walk along the Bayshore Boulevard waterfront sidewalk. Or visit the 250,000 square-foot Florida Aquarium, which displays more than 20,000 plants and animals, including sharks, eels, and other deep sea creatures, and has a 2-acre outdoor water play area for kids. For bigger thrills, visit Busch Gardens, or the Lowry Park Zoo (#1 Zoo in America for Kids). Adjacent to Busch Gardens is Adventure Island, a 30-acre water-theme park. Looking for a quiet museum day? The Tampa Museum of Art, Henry B. Plant Museum, and Tampa History Center are all located along the downtown waterfront. The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), the largest science center in the Southeast United States, is a short drive away. Hop on the streetcar at the convention center to spend a day immersed in the rich history of Ybor City. Once the cigar capital of the world, Ybor City is the birthplace of the Cuban sandwich and home to Florida’s oldest restaurant (Columbia). This National Historic Landmark District abounds in unique shopping, dining and nightlife. August is time for both baseball and football! Take in a Tampa Bay Rays MLB game at Tropicana Field a short drive away in St. Pete. The Rays are hosting two series during our Meeting, one with the Mariners and the other with the Blue Jays. Or watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Cleveland Browns at Raymond James Stadium if you are still around on August 26th for a little pre-season NFL action. Major shopping malls are plentiful in the Tampa area as are smaller collections of specialized stores like those found at Hyde Park Village, nestled within one of Tampa’s oldest neighborhoods. From the famous stores found at International Plaza and WestShore Plaza to Centro Ybor in Ybor City, there is something for every wish list and in every size in Tampa.
