FISH 500 Seminar Series

Fridays at 11am during the 2014 Winter Session

Aquatic Ecosystems Research Laboratory (AERL)

Room 120

Faculty in charge of course: Drs. Daniel Pauly, Rashid Sumaila, and William Cheung
Seminar organizer: Anna Schuhbauer


The Fisheries Seminar Series strives to invite speakers from a wide range of disciplines related to fisheries and/or oceans. Past speakers have included quantitative modelers, public communicators, economists, anthropologists, and ecologists. Although the audience is primarily composed of faculty, staff and students from the Fisheries Centre, other departments are also well represented. It's a wonderful platform for circulating ideas, gaining new perspectives, and provoking engaging discussions.
