The Long-range Planning Committee, in collaboration with members of the Executive Committee, produces a five-year Strategic Plan for the Society. This Plan, while retaining a number of key goals and initiatives from the last plan, has new areas of emphasis which will help guide the Society over the next five years, and beyond. 

The JEDI Task Force is aimed at breaking down barriers for underrepresented groups in SFS

Our Mission

The Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) is an international organization whose members study freshwater organisms, biotic communities, physical processes that affect ecosystem function, linkages between freshwater ecosystems and surrounding landscapes, habitat and water quality assessment, conservation and restoration.

SFS fosters the exchange of scientific information among its membership, and with other professional societies, resource managers, policymakers, educators, and the public.

SFS advocates for the use of best-available science in policymaking and management of freshwater ecosystems.
