We're at the annual meeting of the American Fisheries Society (AFS) in Nashville now. Though the depressed economy has attendance down to about 1,500 (half last year's), we're having a great time. Our booth, featuring an Emriver Em2, is getting a lot of attention.
Fish biologists are fun. They face huge challenges--aquatic ecosystems are integrators of human impact, and suffer accordingly--but the fisheries scientists and management biologists I've known do this hard work with a good attitude.
Cara's doing a wonderful job, as always, and my wife Kate's here to help as well, which makes me very happy.
We've made many new connections and I've reconnected with clients I haven't seen in years. And we've enjoyed talking to the many international students and scientists.
And of course we've been mobbed with excited visitors the whole time!
