On 28th August 2018 the 11th anniversary of the Lindsay Laird Award was celebrated in Montpellier, France during the AQUA 2018 conference.
Winner of 2018 Lindsay Laird Award Announced
This year’s winner, Irene Brandts (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain) received an iPad Mini, books from the 5M publishing company, Springer and Wiley Blackwell, from judge and presenter Ms M. Eleftheriou (AQUALEX Multimedia Consortium, co-sponsor of the award alongside AquaTT).

The winning poster was entitled ‘Do Differences in Coping Styles Influence Stress Response after Vaccination in Gilthead Sea Bream?’ Student winners of the award for innovation in aquaculture have so far come from a wide array of countries, including Belgium, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Germany and Brazil.

This historic university city, a close neighbour of Palavas-les-Flots, which has been long known as an important location for French aquaculture, was very suitable as a venue for the EAS 42nd International Conference. It also proved to be a particularly fitting location for the Lindsay Laird Award. Dr Laird not only translated G. Barnabe’s seminal 2-volume work on Aquaculture from French into English (1990), but also paid several visits to the city while working on the AQUALEX glossary.

More information on the award and on Lindsay Laird herself can be found at www.aquatt.ie, www.aqualex.org and in Wikipedia.
