The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS) at the University of Washington is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in conjunction with a special Bevan Series Symposium. Over the last 100 years, SAFS has evolved from a small fisheries college with 13 students and three faculty to a innovative center for teaching and research with 29 faculty, 175 students and postdoctoral fellows and 75 research and administrative staff.

The festivities begin on April 16 with a two-and-a-half-day 100-year celebration and symposium centered on current issues related to aquatic biology and ecology, aquaculture, fisheries management and ecosystems, plus the future of aquatic and fishery sciences. The symposium will feature talks by alums, current students and postdocs, faculty past and present and friends. The events are sold-out, but you can follow along via live-streamed video of symposium events.

SAFS is also marking the centennial in a commemorative booklet sharing stories from people who have been closely associated with the school over the past several decades. These personal tales highlight interests in aquatic and fishery sciences, and personal reflections from students, faculty and staff.
