Spotlight on Women in Fisheries

The list of women in fisheries who are making an impact is vast and ever growing. Fisheries recently interviewed six of the best – a collection of women involved at all levels in AFS: Diane Elliott (Research Microbiologist at the Western Fisheries Research Center), Lori Martin (Aquatic Biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife), Christine Moffitt (Professor at the University of Idaho), Sarah O’Neal (Aquatic Ecology and Water Ecology at Dr. Carol Ann Woody Fisheries Research and Consulting), Jesse Trushenski (Assistant Professor at Southern Illinois University Carbondale), and Melissa Wuellner (Assistant Professor at South Dakota State University). Together, these accomplished women make up just a fraction of the female dynamo demographics in the world of fisheries – but oh what a fraction it is!
