Professor Bronwyn Gillanders has been recognised for her extraordinary contributions to fish and fisheries sciences. Prof Gillanders was awarded the K Radway Allen Award, the highest award granted by the Australian Society for Fish Biology (ASFB). She is the first South Australian and first woman to receive this prestigious award.
The award was presented at a joint conference by the ASFB and the Oceania Chondrichthyan Society, which also featured a “Women in Ichthyology” session. The session included a poster exhibition highlighting just some of the brilliant women involved in fish and fisheries research, as well as 6 keynote lectures, including one by Prof Gillanders. The keynotes were followed by a panel discussion on gender equity.
Congratulations to Prof Gillanders for her enormous contributions! We look forward to seeing more exciting research in the future.
