The Montana Chapter strongly encourages students and fisheries professionals alike to join and participate in the American Fisheries Society.  In addition the benefits of Parent Society membership, Chapter membership promotes stronger ties and better communication among fisheries scientists in the State.  Access to the membership database, newsletters, and live feed announcements all help you stay connected with other Chapter members, and Chapter meetings facilitate professional networking.

The MTAFS offers two levels of membership: Active and Affiliate.

  1. Active Members also pay their dues to the Parent Society in order to gain full membership benefits, including the ability to participate in Chapter business, voting privileges, and a subscription to Fisheries magazine.
  2. Affiliate Members are non-AFS members who wish to stay informed of local issues and attend the annual Chapter Meeting.

Both membership types will allow full access to this website, including the ability to register for meetings, participate in the discussion board, and access the MTAFS member directory.
