NANFA Awards at Least $1000 For Conservation Research Each Year

 

Since 2001 NANFA has funded the Conservation Research Grant, focusing on supporting research relating to the conservation of North America's indigenous fish fauna, particularly those that are threatened or endangered. The Conservation Research Grant could be awarded to someone in academia, a conservation group, or to an independent researcher. The maximum award for any one proposal is budgeted at $1000.  The deadline for submission of an application is January 20th this year. Award decisions will be announced by March 31st.

 

Recipients are asked to write an article on the results of their research for publication in American Currents and are encouraged to present their findings at NANFA's Annual Convention.  Please review the Conservation Research Grant section of the NANFA website for additional details (http://www.nanfa.org/research.shtml).

 

Grant applications and/or questions about the award may be addressed to:

This year's NANFA Conservation Research Grant proposal review committee participants were Bruce Lilyea, Derek Wheaton and Michael Wolfe. Albeit delayed because of the uncertainties affecting many areas including academia and research, this year we selected the proposal by Bryan Maitland from the University of Wyoming.  The research question for the selected study is: “Non-lethal sampling of native North American freshwater fishes for stable isotope analysis-based food web studies”. More details about this study will be shared in an upcoming edition of American Currents (a NANFA publication).

 

Thank you to all who participate in this year’s Conservation Research Grant process, especially all of the applicants.  Please join me in congratulating Bryan!
