WAS Membership Benefits
Membership in WAS connects aquaculturists with their colleagues world-wide through meetings, publications and the online Membership Directory. Members receive: substantial discounts on registration fees for WAS-sponsored meetings; WORLD AQUACULTURE, the magazine; the JOURNAL OF THE WORLD AQUACULTURE SOCIETY, and reduced prices on WAS publications (books and proceedings).
Membership in WAS would make an excellent gift to an interested student, researcher, educator or entrepreneur. Financial restraints, particularly in developing countries, prevent many deserving individuals from joining WAS. Sponsorship of members is encouraged.
Approved Board meeting minutes are available by request to all members in good standing.
