On September 4, 2019, the Sea Around Us – Indian Ocean research initiative at the University of Western Australia and the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development organized a data-limited stock assessment workshop for fisheries researchers and managers of the local state government.
This week, the Sea Around Us Principal Investigator, Daniel Pauly, is offering a public lecture titled “New ways to view complex oceans data.”
In July 2019, the Sea Around Us Principal Investigator, Dr. Daniel Pauly, visited northern Colombia to attend the XV Congress of Colombian Ichthyologists and the VI Meeting of South American Ichthyologists, held at the Research Centre of the Antioquia University in Medellín.
Dr. Pauly was the keynote speaker on the first day of the three-day event. He presented a lecture titled ‘Fish must breathe: outline of the Gill-oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT).’
In June 2019, the Sea Around Us PI, Dr. Daniel Pauly, and Project Manager, Dr. Deng Palomares, co-hosted a successful, three-day workshop at the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) in Qingdao, a city on China’s Yellow Sea coast. They were assisted by graduate student Lu Zhai and long-time Sea Around Us collaborator Dr. Liang ‘Elsa’ Cui.
After months of planning, on June 27-28 the Sea Around Us celebrated its 20th anniversary with a couple of successful events that strengthened the group’s relationship with researchers and civil society.
On June 27, 2019, the team hosted an informal reception that gathered students, staff, alumni, researchers from around the globe, representatives from the French consulate in Vancouver, colleagues from UBC’s Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries (IOF), delegates from different departments at the University of British Columbia, among other attendees.
