About the Portneuf Unit

The Portneuf Student Subunit is composed of undergraduate and graduate students from Idaho State University. Our goals are to stimulate the professional development of students through interactions with professionals, as well as to take an interest in our local community.

We accomplish this through varying activities, including:

  • Assisting government agencies with stream and fish surveys
  • Sponsoring elementary school classes through the Trout in the Classroom program
  • Participating in community fairs and river cleanup programs
  • Sponsoring guest speakers for public seminars on fisheries related issues
  • Fundraising to assist students in attending the Idaho Chapter's annual meeting
  • Allowing all students interested in fisheries to get together and communicate about research, school, and future goals during regular potluck events
