Esteemed fisheries scientist Dr. Daniel Pauly was recently awarded as the new Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Alicante (UA).
Known for his work on studying human impacts on global fisheries, Dr. Pauly is a forerunner of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management, co-developing simulation toolkits such as Ecopath, Ecosim and EcoSpace to offer a new perspective in managing fisheries.
Dr. Pauly is a co-maker of FishBase and currently the SeaLifeBase Project’s beloved Principal Investigator. The SeaLifeBase Project follows the FishBase example of a global biodiversity information system for the rest of the animals in the oceans.
