In May this year Prof. Daniel Pauly, a world expert in oceans and fisheries, toured New Zealand, thanks to a collaboration between the NZISF, SCANZ, NZ Marine Science Society, and the University of Otago. Prof. Pauly discussed the the growth, expansion and decline of fisheries, and the local and global impacts from humans. Each event was full capacity and well received.
