Wondering what it’s like to work in consulting? Curious about career with a government agency? The AFS UW Career Development Seminar Series brings in professionals from different sectors in fisheries science to divulge their personal career development experiences. Check our calendar for our schedule of seminars!



Our mentorship program seeks to foster social connections between University of Washington undergraduate and graduate students in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. We organize two kinds of interactions to facilitate mentor-mentee relationships:

First, we host a quarterly social event that is open to all interested grad and undergrad students. Food is provided and grad student panels answer questions and discuss topics of interest to undergrads.
Additionally, we pair groups of 1-2 undergrads with a grad student mentor. Mentors and mentees meet once a month to talk about school, research, and careers.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, please email us at afsuw@uw.edu, or come to our next mentorship program event! Check our calendar for details.

Q: How can you get involved with the AFS UW Student Chapter and test your knowledge of fisheries trivia against the pros?
A: Come to trivia night! Held annually in late fall or early winter quarter, trivia night is a great way to show off your fisheries chops and mingle with other “fish heads” and AFS WA/BC parent chapter members. All the profits from trivia night fund the travel of AFS UW students to research conferences. Keep your eye on our calendar for the date of the next trivia night!
