Bleeker Awards IPFC 2017 – Nominations open!!

Since 2005, the Indo-Pacific Fish Conference (IPFC) has had the privilege of presenting the Bleeker Award, an award that honours individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of ichthyology in the Indo-Pacific. The award honours the memory of Pieter Bleeker, the late father of Indo-Pacific Ichthyology.

Organized by the CRIOBE, the 10th IPFC will be held in Papeete, Tahiti French Polynesia from 2-6 October 2017. Nominations for the 2017 Bleeker Awards are now open and will be presented to two ichthyologists for “an outstanding body of published work in Indo-Pacific ichthyology, with a focus on either on systematics or ecology”. The winners of Bleeker awards will have to give a talk about their research during the next IPFC in Tahiti.
