The American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (ASIH) is an international organization devoted to the scientific fields of ichthyology and herpetology. Its primary emphases are to: Increase knowledge about fishes, amphibians and reptiles; Communicate that knowledge through publications, conferences, and other methods; and Encourage and support young scientists who will make future advances in these fields.
The purpose of ASLO is to foster a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest. Its products and activities are directed toward these ends.
Limnology is the study of inland waters - lakes (both freshwater and saline), reservoirs, rivers, streams, wetlands, and groundwater - as ecological systems interacting with their drainage basins and the atmosphere. The limnological discipline integrates the functional relationships of growth, adaptation, nutrient cycles, and biological productivity with species composition, and describes and evaluates how physical, chemical, and biological environments regulate these relationships.
The World Aquaculture Society, through this commitment to excellence in science, technology, education, and information exchange, endeavors to contribute to the progressive and sustainable development of aquaculture throughout the world.
