Published Online: 12/31/2015


This paper summarizes the contributions from the symposium on freshwater crayfish held from January 29th thru February 1st in Savannah, Georgia. The symposium was hosted at the Spring meeting of the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society. This symposium was the third such gathering of astacologists from the southeastern United States in the last six or so years. This symposium was attended by over 50 students, agency biologists and astacologists from across the central and southeastern United States. A total of 24 manuscript were received for consideration in this special meeting issue of Freshwater Crayfish, and of those, 19 contributions have made it into the present volume. Several of the manuscripts were postponed and so will appear in an upcoming issue of the journal. This issue has been dedicated to the memory of Dr. John E. Cooper, our mentor and astacological colleague from North Carolina who passed away earlier this year.
