American Fisheries Society: Use of Propagated Fish in Resource Management

Provided consultation, technology and facilitation for Conference of North American stakeholders charged with updating AFS guidelines for the use of Propagated Fishes in Resource Management.

Strong philosophical differences were represented on the definition of “native” fish, the desirability of stocking, and where these operations are appropriate. While broad perspective were represented, sometimes with difficult and contradictory regional priorities, collegiality prevailed in discussions and a series of consensus-based position statements emerged.

Collaborative technology enabled full and free participation, capture of minority positions and multiple rounds of team polling to identify and frame consensus areas.

Team-based recommendations for updating the 1993 guidelines were collected, reviewed and incorporated.
