AFS in the (Alyeska) house!

Aw yeah, fisheries nerds, it's that time of year again! The Alaska Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is having their annual meeting this week. This year it's being held at the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood (a suburb of Anchorage, if you will). The theme is

Fisheries in Today’s Alaska:
Integrating Fish, Habitat, and People

I'm not able to attend this year, but I can tell you which presentations I'd be heading for if I was:

Marine Invertebrates in Alaska
chaired by Joel Webb
Friday, beginning at 8:40 AM!

Pribilof Domain King Crab Habitat Mapping Pilot Project: Demonstrating Efficacy of Multibeam Sonar Technology for Multiuse Seabed Mapping - Michelle Ridgway, Christopher Popham, Christopher Merculief, and Peter Hickman

Phylogeography of Red King Crabs in Alaskan Waters - W. Stewart Grant and Wei Cheng

Molt Timing and Soft Shell Handling Levels for Male Dungeness Crabs in Southeast Alaska - Gretchen H. Bishop

Hybrid Chionoecetes in the Bering Sea: What We Know and What We Don’t Know - Dan Urban (remember hearing about hybrids here?)

(Read abstracts here.)

There are also some non-crustacean SFOS students presenting, so if you're there, make sure you head to the student presentations too! Which talks were your favorites??
