14 Apr, 2017

Dear AFS Colleague,

I am Alice Joan Ferrer from the University of the Philippines Visayas and currently the Vice President of Asian Fisheries Society (AFS). I was recently assigned to coordinate for the Asian Fisheries Social Science Research Network (AFSSRN) Section of AFS.

I am writing to request for your support in reactivating the AFSSRN Section of AFS by joining it. As existing active AFS member, then to become an AFSSRN Section member, simply send a short message indicating your wish to join AFSSRN Section to the AFS Executive Officer – info@asianfisheriessociety.org. Your AFS membership details will be amended to include membership in AFSSRN.

The objectives of the AFSSRN are:

  • to promote effective interaction and cooperation among persons involved in living aquatic resources social sciences research;
  • to encourage and promote investigation and advances in knowledge of living aquatic resources social sciences;
  • to focus attention on living aquatic resources social sciences problems by disseminating technical and other information on all aspects of living aquatic resources social sciences and management; and
  • to promote the proper use of living aquatic resources social sciences research practices and results in the region.

If you decide to join the AFSSRN Section now, then you will have the chance to participate in the nomination and selection of the Executive Committee officers. All other things will follow after we have the ExeCom of AFSSRN.

For those whose AFS membership is due this year, please renew your membership online by visiting this site: http://www.asianfisheriessociety.org/join.php. If you cannot access that site, then please visit the AFS website at http://www.asianfisheriessociety.org/ and scroll down to see the icon for membership.

I look forward to your participation in the AFSSRN Section of AFS.

Truly Yours,
