The American Fisheries Society (AFS) is an international organization whose mission is "to improve the conservation and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems." It is the oldest and largest fisheries professional society, established in 1870.
In March 2007, the Duke University chapter of AFS was established, known as DukeFish. Our mission is to promote sustainable fishing and consumer practices by reaching out to peers, community members, and industry. We strive to achieve this through education, distribution of sustainable seafood cards, outreach, lectures, games, field trips, and video presentations. We are also home of the DukeFish slap koozies!
Then join DukeFish for a private Happy Hour at Fishmonger's Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Durham and hear the latest on the exciting community-supported fishery (CSF) initiative we're launching!
Similar to a vegetable CSA, DukeFish is starting a seafood CSF program at Duke next fall, and we'd like your input. Come to Fishmonger's next Thursday night to enjoy some great local seafood and find out how you can get involved!
