At the opening plenary session of the EAS/WAS co-organised AQUA 2018 event in Montpellier on August 25th, the European Aquaculture Society gave its Distinguished Service Award to Dr. ir. Margriet Drouillon MBA, Aquaculture Business Developer at Ghent University in Belgium, for her commitment and contributions to the objectives and activities of the Society. AQUA 2018 was attended by 3003 participants from 109 countries.
Björn Myrseth, EAS President 2016-2018 introduced and presented the award in front of a packed auditorium at Le Corum in Montpellier. He explained the fact that although the award is made to those that have shown outstanding service to furthering EAS and its objectives, it is not just for those that have given many years of their life to EAS, but it is also about effort and impact.
