Biography

Dr Josep Lloret is a fisheries biologist who carries out pioneering research on fish condition and its influence on life-history traits such as reproduction and growth. His research tasks were conducted at the CSIC and the University of Girona, Spain, the Institute of Sea Fisheries-Thünen Institute, Germany and the CNRS in France.

Dr Prof. Georgiy Shulman is a marine animal biologist, and a specialist in fish ecology and physiology. His well-known investigations have great significance for fish adaptations, biodiversity, life history, and productivity as well as fishery problems. His research is carried out at the Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, Ukraine.

Dr R. Malcolm Love has been a world-known fish biochemist and biotechnologist. He carried out research in the fields of fish chemical biology and fish used as human food. Unfortunately, Dr Love passed away in 2006, but previously he worked at Torry Research Station, Aberdeen, UK.
