The TCAFS supports the American Fisheries Society (AFS) by promoting the conservation, development, and wise use of Texas fisheries by supporting and evaluating the development and advancement of all branches of fisheries science and practice. The Texas Chapter gathers and disseminates to its members and the general public scientific, technical, and other information about fisheries science and practice through publications, meetings, and other forms of communication, such as newsletters.

Annual meetings allow fisheries students, professors, and other professionals to give presentations for lively discussions on current topics. By supporting the teaching of fisheries science and practice in colleges and universities and the continuing education and development of fisheries professionals, the TCAFS encourages the proper use of aquatic resources by initiating and participating in special projects that increase public awareness, expand participation, improve habitat, and protect fragile resources.
