American Fisheries Society AFS Ontario Chapter
Although the American Fisheries Society has been in existence since 1870, chapters were not established as subunits of the parent society until 1962. The Southern Ontario Chapter was formed in 1988. Mr. Henk Rietveld submitted the southern Ontario petition at the 118th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society, in Toronto, ON on September 14, 1988. The petition was unanimously accepted and an interim slate of executives were elected.
Our objective is to encourage and foster the exchange of information about fisheries by members of the Chapter, the Society and others in the Province of Ontario.
