The inaugural Ransom A. Myers Lecture on Science and Society will be
held October
3rd, 2008 at 7:00 pm in the Ondaatje Auditorium, Faculty of Arts and Social
Sciences Building at Dalhousie University.

Ransom (RAM) Myers was a world reknowned fisheries scientist and advocate
for marine conservation who taught and conducted research at Dalhousie. He
died in March 2007. This lecture series has been organized by his family,
colleagues and former students as one way to continue his legacy of science
and its relevance and relationship to society.

The inaugural lecture will be given by Ram's friend and colleague, Andy
Rosenberg, Professor at the University of New Hampshire and former Deputy
Director of the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). He has served
as the U.S. representative to international organizations including the Food
and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Northwest
Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO). With his expertise in marine biology
and marine resource conservation, he has earned recognition from such
diverse organizations as the U.S. Coast Guard and the World Wildlife Fund.

Dr. Rosenberg's lecture will focus on the future of fisheries given the
challenges that are facing the industry, nations and the public. These
challenges include ending overfishing, changing the direction of fisheries
management, creating a new governance approach to the ocean, and confronting
the reality of climate change.  *
