The Aquaculture Association of Canada mourns the loss of a friend, colleague, and mentor. Joe Brown passed away suddenly at his home in Shoe Cove, Newfoundland, on Sunday, September 4, 2005. A Past President of AAC, Joe was a colorful, vibrant, and cheerful staple to every AAC conference and other aquaculture-related meetings, both in Canada and worldwide. His professional relationships were all sincere, illustrated by the large network of colleagues that also called him a friend. His contributions to aquaculture are countless and outstanding, all the while he was one of the most approachable – and recognizable – figures in his field. In addition, Joe’s commitment to students was unprecedented. The Ocean Sciences Centre, Memorial University, and the aquaculture community have lost a dear friend. Joe will always be remembered with a smile.
Donations may be made to the Dr. Joseph Brown Scholarship Fund Memorial University of Newfoundland (specify other: Dr. Joseph Brown Scholarship Fund).
Our condolences are extended to Joe’s family and close friends.
