Alumni

Each year, dozens of IOF trainees earn Master’s or Doctoral degrees for their innovative research in oceans and fisheries. These highly qualified personnel are now working at the forefront of the global shift toward sustainable oceans. We are extremely proud of our alumni for their contributions and their successes.

 

We are looking to re-connect with our IOF/Fisheries Centre Alumni!
Please subscribe to our alumni list and we’ll contact you with information about our research, activities and changes at IOF.
