SAFS at 2016 World Fisheries Congress

Fourteen UW students and faculty, together with countless more SAFS alumni attended the 7th World Fisheries Congress in Busan, South Korea, this May. The theme for this year was “Challenges to Sustainable Fisheries and Safe Seafoods”, a topic very relevant to our lab. There were 36 sessions at this congress, and approximately 1400 attendees. Two members of the current Punt lab were in attendance – Dr. Punt and MS student Lee Qi – as well as many former lab members, including Dr. Jim Thorson and Dr. Athol Whitten. Dr. Punt gave a talk titled “An Honest Appraisal on Stock Assessment”, and Lee Qi gave a presentation about her thesis work at SAFS.
