Get Hooked: Your Fisheries Resources Community
Our students are actively engaged on campus with course and lab work as well as opportunities outside the classroom. Building on a common ground, students meet peers, others in the natural resource community as well as fishery professionals. By participating in organizations such as the University of Idaho American Fisheries Society Student Chapter or by attending presentations by visiting fish and wildlife professionals, you’ll stay engaged in the natural resource community.
For instance in spring 2010, our program hosted Mark Polinski from the Aquaculture Research Institute who spoke about Recent Advances in Conservation Aquaculture of Burbot. Burbot are freshwater cod native to the Kootenai River in Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia. In particular burbot are culturally significant to the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho (KTOI). Frequent presentations by guest lecturers, industry pros, visiting professors and graduate students will keep you abreast of pivotal developments in fish science.
