A number of highly productive fish endocrinologists retire every year and may not have the opportunity to be recognized by their peers for their contributions. This nomination was first established by the Organizing Committee of the 6th International Symposium on Fish Endocrinology to formally recognize a number of distinguished fish endocrinologists during each ISFE meeting.
From the submissions received by the deadline, the International Council will select up to five nominees for the Lifetime Achievement Award. The nominators for each of the 5 individuals will be responsible to produce a poster on each selected nominee that will be displayed throughout the meeting to highlight the accomplishments of the award winner. Nominations will only be accepted for recently retired nominees (normally within the past 2 years).
