Our Hutton Program financial supporters and host organizations, agencies and institutions ensure the future of fisheries by achieving the following:
- Invest in a new generation of fisheries scientists
- Help diversify the fisheries profession by engaging minorities and women
- Promote organizational values and objectives
- Receive public relations materials that feature their participation in the program
The Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is generously supported by Federal Agencies, State Agencies, AFS Chapters, Sections, Divisions and AFS Members. Supporters who provide financial contributions enable the Hutton Program to continue and expand its efforts to ensure the future of fisheries by attracting young people to and diversifying the profession.
