Our Supporters

The Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is supported by federal agencies, state agencies, AFS Chapters, Sections and Divisions. 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. The number of awards given to students each year depends on the availability of funds.

Supporters receive annual reports about program participants and success, public relations materials as well as recognition for their generosity in Fisheries Magazine and on AFS social media sites.

  • Invest in a new generation of fisheries scientists
