We will meet at the scenic Falcon’s Ledge and Hidden Springs Ranch near Altamont, Utah on March 15-17. Our theme this year is “Fish need water (FISH20)” encompassing the problems for fish populations and fisheries management created by recent droughts and the threat of long-term climate change. We have two acclaimed plenary speakers who will address issues of climate change and potential mitigation for fish populations – Dr. Sarah Null (USU) and Dr. Clint Muhlfeld (USGS).

We encourage all members of UAFS and other interested individuals to sign up for a research presentation or poster, or to give a status report on fish and fisheries related issues around the state.  To submit an abstract for a research presentation or poster, please send the following information via email to [email protected]

In addition, this year we are holding a special session to cover updates and status reports from fisheries professionals around the state. To accommodate many individuals we will use a “lightning talk” format (5 min. presentation + 2 min. questions) for this session. We hope to have representation from all DWR regions, other government agencies (BLM, FWS, USFS, etc.), and other organizations (TU and others). To schedule a presentation in this lightning session, please send the following information via email [email protected]
