David Welch has been awarded the 2012 Award of Excellence from the American Fisheries Society Fisheries Management Section. The Award of Excellence is given “…for inspirational leadership in the fishery profession and substantial achievements for AFS and the fisheries resource. The recipients must have effectively communicated their work at the national and/or international level. The Award of Excellence is given for cumulative accomplishments rather than a singular effort.”
The award will be presented at the AFS Annual General Meeting in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) Minnesota, on the 19th of August 2012. The AFS is the oldest and largest professional society for fisheries scientists in the world.
