The SAFS community is an active bunch, and we love sharing knowledge. From our renowned annual Bevan Series on Sustainable Fisheries that brings together fisheries leaders from across the country to our seminar series held weekly each academic quarter, SAFS is the place to learn about anything fisheries related. View our seminar schedules and stop by; most of our seminars are open to the public.


Bevan Series on Sustainable Fisheries – Held one quarter each year, usually in a format of 10 weekly seminars and on occasion, as a 2-day symposium. The Bevan Series features internationally recognized experts seeking to examine current issues affecting fisheries and marine conservation, representing as many viewpoints as possible, focusing on solutions, not just problems. The series is free and open to the public.

Departmental Seminars – Held on Thursday afternoons during the academic year, this weekly seminar series presents invited speakers from academia and governmental and non-governmental agencies and organizations. Issues of interest and concern in the aquatic and fishery sciences and the latest research findings are discussed. This SAFS seminar series consists of weekly presentations by eminent academics, prospective faculty members, and the School’s own faculty members. Seminars are free and open to the public.

Graduate Student Invited Speaker Event – This event provides an exciting opportunity for SAFS graduate students to nominate and select a speaker for the School’s spring seminar series. The event was proposed by graduate students in 2007 as a way to contribute to and shape perspectives brought to the School via the seminar series. We seek experts in the fields of ecology, resource management, and conservation to provide insight into novel, constructive approaches to practical problems in aquatic and fishery sciences.

Quantitative Seminar Series – This is a weekly lunch-time series with varying topics presenting quantitative analysis. This series is free and open to the public.

Fisheries Think Tank – This series is a collaboration among fisheries stock assessment researchers at SAFS, the Northwest Fisheries Science Center, and Alaska Fisheries Science Center of NOAA Fisheries. Subscribe to the Think Tank list-serv.

The SAFS Graduate Student Symposium is an annual event, where students have the opportunity to present their research before their peers and faculty. There are both oral and poster presentations. Awards are given to the best of each category at the master’s and doctoral level. This event is open to the public.
