Medals

Each year, the FSBI awards medals for life-long individual contributions to fish biology, with a focus on ground-breaking research; for conservation, training or public understanding of the discipline; and for exceptional advances in early career.

The Beverton Medal

beverton_medal_2018

The Beverton medal is awarded to a distinguished scientist for a lifelong contribution to all aspects of the study of fish biology and/or fisheries science, with a focus on ground-breaking research.

The FSBI Medal

fsbi_medal_2018

The FSBI medal is awarded to an early career scientist who is deemed to have made exceptional advances in the study of fish biology and/or fisheries science in recognition of their achievements. Individuals are eligible for nomination if their PhD  was awarded less than 15 years before the closing date of nominations, though allowance for career breaks will be made and taken into account on an individual basis (please give details in nominations).

The Le Cren Medal

le_cren_medal_2018

The Le Cren medal is awarded to one or more individuals who have made a lifelong contribution to all aspects of the study of fish biology and/or fisheries science, with a focus on conservation, training or public understanding of the discipline.

How to nominate

Nominations for medals may be made by members of the Society at any time, but no later than 11 February of the year in which the medal is to be awarded. 

The nominator should submit a summary of the nominee's contribution to fish biology and/or fisheries science (one A4 side) and a full CV with a list of publications, including those in Press. Other information submitted will not be considered. Nominations for the FSBI medal should be accompanied by a summary of the importance of the nominee's research (one A4 side), rather than a summary of overall contribution.

Nominations should be submitted to the Honorary Secretary from whom further information may be obtained in confidence.

Presentation of the Medals

The Beverton and Le Cren medals are presented to the successful nominee at the Society's Annual International Symposium held in July each year. The FSBI medal is normally presented to the successful nominee at a time and place mutually agreed between the Society and the recipient.
