Peter Spillett Memorial Award

We are delighted to announce that we have had two successful applications for the 2024 Peter Spillett Memorial Award. 

The two lucky recipients to receive the grant are Mr Nsogbu Wadike, currently studying at the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling and his award will help fund attendance at the World Aquaculture Society annual conference in Copenhagen. 

The Second recipient is Mr Oke Ojo, studying at the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture Technology, Federal University of Technology, Akure, and his award will help fund attendance at The Association of Nigerian Fisheries Scientist (ANIFS) conference in Lagos. 

We wish these students the very best for their conference attendance and look forward to the reports on their experience. 

The award is in memory of Peter Spillett; long-time member and avid supporter of the IFM who also served as our Chairman and President.  

Peter did much to progress the IFM and its aim to advance sustainable fisheries management.

Please keep an eye on our media releases for the launch of the 2025 Peter Spillett Memorial Award which will be open for applications in September 2025.

This Award has been supported by a generous donation from Five Rivers Environmental Consulting Ltd.
