The inaugural offering of the FISHES course will be held October 14th - November 13th, 2021!
The FISHES program is designed to extend practical, science-based information about fisheries management, fisheries science, and sustainability to fish enthusiasts in a user-friendly format. This in-person course consists of 20 hours of instruction: five 2-hour classroom sessions (light refreshments provided), one 5-hour field excursion, and 5 hours of required reading from the textbook written to accompany the course. The course is open to anyone ages 18 and up, and the registration fee is $50*. Completion of this course qualifies each participant to receive CEU credits through the Mississippi State University Extension Service Center for Continuing Education. Each participant will also receive a “swag bag” consisting of a SeaQualizer, a dehooker, and other on-the-water gear (a $150 value!).
