The Oklahoma Student Subunit of the American Fisheries Society was formed in 1996 by students for students. This organization is dedicated to bringing awareness of past, present, and future fisheries related issues to graduate and undergraduate students currently enrolled in Oklahoma universities. Since 1978, the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Fisheries Society has brought fisheries professionals together to exchange information and act on issues of concern to fisheries resources in Oklahoma. However, student needs differ from those of established fisheries professionals, and our goal is to address the specific needs of students and draw qualified students into the field of fisheries science.
The mission of the OSU Student Chapter of the SAF is to generate an environment advantageous to fostering professional development as well as providing opportunities to interact and network with other student members and professionals in forestry and other associated fields.
