In the UBC Fisheries Centre annual report for 2010-2011, Dr. Rashid Sumaila, Director and Professor of the UBC Fisheries Centre states:
The years 2010 and 2011 have been very exciting for those of us here at the Fisheries Centre. We welcomed two new faculty members, increasing the number of faculty at our Centre to twelve. First, we hired Dr Sang-Seon Yun, who comes to us from Kunsan National University in Korea, and is working with the Aboriginal Fisheries Research Unit in examining chemical communication systems of fishes. We also welcomed National Geographic Fellow Dr William W.L. Cheung, who obtained his PhD at UBC in 2007 and has returned to work on global change biology and fisheries.
The year 2011 also included the launch of a new website and visits from very distinguished guests thus helping the Fisheries Centre to ‘persevere in [its’] scholarly productivity and outreach efforts, with the goal of cultivating local and international fisheries awareness’.
