About our Web Site

History of the SCAFS web site

This web site was redeveloped from the ground up in November 2006 with the goals of making it as easy as possible to find information quickly, and to update the site’s behind-the-scenes programming to meet modern web design standards. We hope everyone likes the new format. With the relaunch of the site in 2006 the site was also moved to a new home on a SCDNR web server (thanks SCDNR for hosting the site for a few years). An archive of the old site (prior to November 2006) is available for download in Acobat PDF format [3.4 MB]. We thank Jason Moak for hosting and maintaining the site during those years. Then, in February 2008, SCFWA and SCAFS jointly obtained a new web hosting provider and our site was moved off of DNR’s server. The website was managed by  Snoots Technology Services LLC between 2008 and 2020. In 2020 a transition took place to bring the Chapter Website under the umbrella of the American Fisheries Society domain.

Coding, Standards, and Compatibility

Our current web site was developed and is maintained by Wiley Sinkus at the direction of SCAFS’s Officers. All HTMLCSS, and PHP code on this site is conducted through WordPress and comply with the HTML 4.01 “Strict” DTD. Using modern web standards, and semantic, validated coding assures that our site loads fast, looks great, is accessible, and has a stable, consistent appearance in any modern, standards-compliant web browser. This site has been tested with current versions of the Safari, Firefox, Opera, Lynx, and Internet Explorer web browsers, and on the Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.


Efforts have been taken to make this web site accessible to all users including those with disabilities. We believe that our site conforms to the best practice guidelines of both the W3C-WAI‘s “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines” and also U.S. “Section 508” Guidelines for accessibility.
