*The Buckland Foundation sponsors a Buckland Professor annually to deliver an open lecture on a contemporary topic in fisheries science, in honour of Frank Buckland, a 19th century Army surgeon, naturalist, and bon viveur, who was Inspector of Salmon Fisheries from 1867-1880 and who pioneered public communication on many marine issues. In 1920, the family left the proceeds of his estate to establish the Foundation in order to continue this communication. The Foundation will be represented at the Lecture by Dr Colin Bannister (Trustee and Vice Chairman).
