Two master's students in the program have won Honorable Mention for Best Student Paper at the annual meeting of the American Fisheries Society. They were master's students who competed against Ph.D. students close to completion of their degrees.
All students who have taken their degrees with Dr. Jones, or were supported by the program, have secured professional positions. Hiring was largely based on what was perceived by employers as a superior background in fisheries science and statistics.
