JAM 2021: THANK YOU / FISH HEAD OF THE YEAR!
Jam 2021: The virtual meeting
Jam 2021 has come to a close! For a little while, we didn’t know if this event was going to happen, but the hard work and dedication of the members off this society made it happen. Thank you to everyone who made this event a success despite all the challenges in getting it off the ground.
Over the next couple of days / weeks, we’ll be putting out a recap of the event including award winners, small grant recipients, winners of the best student presentation/poster, and more.
AWARDS: FISH HEAD OF THE YEAR
As the Gila River Basin Program lead for the Department, Tony has had unprecedented success establishing populations of native fish throughout the Gila River basin and is primarily (or partially) responsible for the establishment of at least 57 populations of Gila Topminnow, Desert Pupfish, Spikedace, Loach Minnow and Roundtail Chub in the Gila River Basin.
In addition to his unbelievable work as a biologist, Tony has also mentored and supervised a number of biologists over the years, many of whom have advanced to successful fisheries careers and are still members of this chapter, with some moving on to the highest ranks in the Department.
Tony, the members of the AZ/NM AFS Society and the native fish of the desert Southwest thank you for your dedication and hard work!
