Renowned speakers at the American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting
The American Fisheries Society (AFS) Annual Meeting is being held from August 17 to 21 in Québec City. Four renowned scientists lectured on the following topics on the theme of From Fisheries Research to Management: Thinking and Acting Locally and Globally:
- the importance of basic science for fishery management (Louis Bernatchez, Ph.D., Université Laval, Canada);
- worldwide patterns in riverine fish diversity (Thierry Oberdorff, Ph.D., Muséum national d’histoire naturelle, France);
- the importance of stakeholder involvement in fisheries management (Ana Parma, Ph.D., Centro Nacional Patagonico, Argentina); and
- how organizations can involuntarily distort the flow of information (David Bella, Ph.D., Oregon State University, United States).
The next edition of Infoceans will provide an overview of the AFS Annual Meeting, which the Department hosted.
