Annual Meeting

All current fellows are asked to attend an annual meeting. Traditionally the meeting takes place in April/May and is located at one of the NMFS Science Center laboratories (there are 6 Science Centers in the US and each has multiple laboratories). It is also useful to have the meeting at or near a state Sea Grant program, allowing for both Sea Grant and NMFS participation.  The  2014 meeting was held at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington.

A copy of the 2014 program includes an overall agenda, a list of participating fellows and their presentation abstracts.

Election of New Fellows

Once application materials have been received two technical expert review panels are appointed – one for each discipline. The panels review and rate all applications. As a result, in May/June, a new set of selected fellows is announced.

The fellows selected for 2014 are listed below
