A. G. Huntsman Award

The A.G. Huntsman Award was established in 1980 by the Canadian marine science community to recognize excellence in research and outstanding contributions to marine sciences.  The award was created to honour the memory of Archibald Gowanlock Huntsman (1883-1972), a pioneer Canadian oceanographer and fishery biologist.  It honours those men and women, of any nationality, who have had and continue to have a significant influence on the course of marine scientific thought.  The A.G. Huntsman Award reflects the multifaceted nature of marine research and is presented annually in one of the three categories: marine geosciences, physical, chemical oceanography, and biological oceanography.  The A.G. Huntsman Award is funded by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Natural Resources Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

2013 Recipient - Scott Doney, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute
