President Casey Pennock

I am a senior, double majoring in Fisheries and Wildlife Ecology and Management.  This is will be my second year as a member of the Student Sub-Chapter.  Once I have completed my bachelors at KSU I hope to attend Graduate school and study Stream Fishes, specifically T&E species. 

Vice President  Kevin Kirkbride

I am a senior majoring in Fisheries Ecology and Management. I have been an active member in the Kansas State AFS sub-chapter for three years, and my favorite hobbies include hunting and fishing.

Exchanges of fishes between the mainstem and tributary streams of the San Juan River. My research will attempt to quantify the movement of native species in the San Juan River basin of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.  Fishes studied include, but are not limited to, bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, and roundtail chub. Currently, my approach will utilize two primary tools: 1) GIS to identify species distribution among habitats in the San Juan basin based on historical and contemporary fish data and 2) PIT tag studies to track movement rates of native fishes within and between habitats.

Faculty Co-Advisor Dr. Bruce Snyder

Dr. Snyder is an Instructor in the Division of Biology and also
coordinates the Research Experiences for Undergraduates summer
program. He has advised the subunit since spring 2010. Dr. Snyder is
trained as a soil ecologist with expertise in invasive earthworms. Why
would an earthworm ecologist advise the fisheries society? Most
earthworms used as bait by anglers are not native to North America,
and human transport is a critical component of non-native earthworm
