Since this is the 25th anniversary of our Nebraska Game & Parks Commission’s Aquatic Habitat Program we have been highlighting the achievements of that program this year.  I have blogged about it several times.  I want to return to that subject today.  In fact, this is a blog post that I should have done months ago. . . .

This past year Nebraska’s Aquatic Habitat Program was honored by the Fisheries Management Section of the American Fisheries Society.  The American Fisheries Society (AFS) is the professional organization for pointy-headed fisheries biologists.  At their annual meeting this past year, the conservation achievement award was presented to Nebraska’s Aquatic Habitat Program:


We are very proud of our Aquatic Habitat Program and what it has accomplished.  We are honored to receive the award from the Fisheries Management Section of AFS.  If I may, let me share some of the nomination letters:





We have accomplished a lot for Nebraska’s fisheries resources in the past 25 years.  We are not quitting, the eutrophication process never stops.  There will be much more to do in the next twenty-five.
