Michael New honoured by Asian Fisheries Society

Category : Updates

Michael New, AwF Founder, was honoured by the Asian Fisheries Society on April 21 with a Gold Medal Award during The 9th Asian Fisheries and Aquaculture Forum at Shanghai Ocean University in China. Unfortunately, Michael was unable to attend the event but AwF Director, Patrick Sorgeloos, who did attend, kindly received the award on Michael’s behalf. The citation of Michael’s Gold Medal Award recognizes his contribution to regional aquaculture development and his work with WAS/EAS/AwF. In 2010, he was given the Exemplary Gold Medal by The World Aquaculture Society for his services to the Society.
