The South Dakota State University Student Subunit (SDState AFS) was founded in 2003 under the auspices of the Dakota Chapter and the Parent Society of the American Fisheries Society (AFS) and was recognized by South Dakota State University as an official campus organization in 2005. Members of SDState AFS include graduate and undergraduate students at the university. The goals of the subunit:
- Promote the conservation, development, and wise use of fisheries.
- Promote and evaluate the continuing education and advancement of its members in all branches of fisheries science and practice.
- Gather and disseminate to members and the general public scientific, technical, and other information about fisheries science and practice through publications, meetings, and other forms of communication.
SDState AFS provides a means for aspiring fisheries professionals to become members of a professional society and to further develop their professional skills outside of the classroom. The Subunit encourages students of all levels—freshman to graduate student—to get involved. Dues are $5 for undergraduate students, $10 for faculty and graduate students. For more information, please contact the president of the Subunit.
