During coffee breaks, attendees were able to check out the “Tools of the Trade” exposition where in all types of field equipment and gear were put on display for AGM attendees to peruse and ask questions. Affectionately dubbed the Equipment Palooza by your ExComm, the exhibit brought together as much fisheries field gear that could fit into one room. Equipment on display included five different backpack electrofishers, a variety of gill nets, hoop nets, fyke nets, trammel nets, trap nets, drift nets, and several types of trawls. Also displayed was a wide assortment of limnological sampling equipment and benthic sampling equipment. The room was open for the duration of the meeting and at several times, groups of people could be found picking up equipment and discussing the use of the equipment or reliving stories of past field projects. Oh the memories! Special thanks to Bill Gardner for organizing.
