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).

This year's NANFA Conservation Research Grant proposal review committee participants were Bruce Lilyea, Derek Wheaton and Michael Wolfe. This year we selected the proposal by Owen Ridge from the University of Toronto.  The research questions for the selected study are: “Freshwater Mussel Shells and Noturus Madtoms in Ontario: a Rare Opportunity for the Conservation of Two At-Risk Groups?”. 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 Owen!
