As a part of this reunion, we will be collecting donations through the online registration for the "Dr. Joe Brown Scholarship". This award was established to commemorate the life and work of Dr. Joe Brown through initial contributions by his family, friends, colleagues and students. As a Professor (Research) at the Ocean Sciences Centre from 1984 to 2005, Joe 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. When registering we hope you will consider giving a donation in memory of Dr. Brown.
