“Then and Now” Dynamic Fisheries in Changing NY Waters


Aquatic ecosystems within and surrounding New York have experienced unprecedented change over the past several decades largely due to anthropogenic stressors such as climate change and fishing pressure. This NYCAFS meeting will look to the past and explore how this history, coupled with modern management and techniques, has led to current issues and shaped the state of our fisheries today. This meeting seeks to present science and research, as well as personal and professional experiences, that highlight the significance of how understanding these changes is paramount in the effort to create a sustainable future.

Program and Schedule


WorkshopAn Introduction to Aquatic Invasive Species Resources and Identification, February 8, 2023   1-4pm
Join the Long Island Invasive Species Management Area (LIISMA) for our Aquatic Invasive Species Identification Workshop. LIISMA is one of the eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) in New York State that can coordinate management and outreach regarding invasive species. After a brief presentation on LIISMA and the resources that your local PRISM can provide to you, we will lead a workshop in identifying aquatic invasive species in the northeastern region, their ecological and economic impacts, and ways to report them if found.
