Dr. Michael Sinclair (Director, Bedford Institute of Oceanography)

Following graduate studies in phytoplankton ecology in estuaries, research shifted to population dynamics of exploited fish and invertebrate populations. Atlantic herring and American scallops were the species of particular focus. Synthesis work led to the publication in 1988 of the book entitled "Marine Populations: an Essay on Population Regulation and Speciation." The book proposed the "member/vagrant" hypothesis as an alternate interpretation of population regulation for marine species. Recent research has focussed on management systems for fisheries and
integrated oceans management. Some recent research has also been directed towards the history of marine research.

Key words: exploited fish, population dynamics, Atlantic herring, American scallops, management, marine history
