He receives this award in recognition of his ground-breaking research and lifelong contribution to the study of fish and fisheries science.

Knowing where different salmon stocks forage will be essential for identifying the unique environmental threats they will face as oceans become more inhospitable due to climate change and other cumulative impacts.

Daniel Pauly argues that scientists need to avoid attaching human attributes to fish and start looking at their unique biology and constraints through a different lens.

Benoit's field research is based in the Strait of Georgia and Johnstone Strait, where she collects samples of environmental DNA - eDNA is microscopic pieces of genetic material left behind when the fish travel through water - from Pacific salmon.

Focusing her research on the diets of California sea lions, Pozas enjoys working with the 'dogs of the sea', proving that the "ocean is not such a scary place and that there's so much to learn still."

The Sea Around Us' Daniel Pauly, and Rainer Froese, senior scientist at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, talk about their recent paper "MSY needs no epitaph—but it was abused".

I’m creating a model that will predict the hypoxic conditions of freshwater streams years from now. This will help governmental organizations know where to focus their conservation efforts in terms of which streams are going to be the most impacted by our changing environment, said Ramirez.

With a background in archaeology, Efford been able to put her unique skillset to use working with the Tsleil-Waututh Nation to create a model of the Burrard Inlet’s pre-colonial contact aquatic ecosystems.


Despite there being no singular common cause of death, the study found a common theme: Human-caused deaths occurred in every age class — from juveniles to subadults and adults.
