SEAFWA 2015 has ended
Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 SEAFWA Annual Meeting.

NEW THIS YEAR!
The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 2), track (i.e. Wildlife Technical Sessions), or session (i.e. Wildlife Session #1). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Changing Landscapes by Coalition), key term (i.e. striped bass), or presenter last name (i.e. Weaver). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Emily M. Granstaff, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Biologists possess great knowledge of fish barriers across the southeast region. However, most of these data are not compiled or easily accessible in a standardized format. Wouldn’t it be great to capture and review this type of information by simply pulling out your smartphone? By crowdsourcing data collection efforts with the help of existing capacity and mobile technology, we can collect, edit, and share fish barrier data more effectively and efficiently. The resulting product is a spatial database that can be maintained in real time by multiple partners at a low-cost and used by project managers to locate new barrier removal projects. During this session, we will share lessons learned from this approach applied in the Tennessee and Cumberland River basins.
