Offered biennially, the Larkin Lecture is a free public lecture by a leading oceans or fisheries researcher. A student-organized panel discussion on the lecture takes place the next day. The Larkin Lectures honour the memory of Dr. Peter Larkin, an eminent fisheries biologist and emeritus professor who was known for his expertise in conservation, resource management and environmental impact assessment. A manuscript of each lecture is submitted for publication in the academic journal Fish and Fisheries.

***Please note: the 2017 Larkin Lecture has been cancelled due to illness of the speaker. The next lecture will be scheduled for 2018***
