Dr. Joe Brown, Research Scientist at the Ocean Sciences Centre from 1984 to 2005, established a unique reputation both for his scholarly work in the areas of behavioural ecology of fishes and cold-water aquaculture and for his radiant, passionate sense of humour, humanity and empathy, particularly concerning students. Auction items can be dropped off at either of the NAIA offices or the registration desk during the conference. All items are greatly appreciated!
