1992 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology

Fish Growth and Development

June - August, 1992

The 1992 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology brought together a diverse and highly accomplished group of international scientists working in the field of fish growth and development. These included many of the acknowledged world leaders in this expanding field. Among other valuable consequences of the program, a new level of understanding was achieved among scientists approaching fish growth and developmental processes from different perspectives. For example, one group working with the attainment of the capacity to ingest and absord nutrients in larval fish was able to interact for the first time with other groups studying the hormonal and genetic factors apparently regulating these early developmental processes. Another excellent example of the synergy that occurred during our program was the meeting of three groups of scientists who have developed different methods of inducing spawning in fish. These scientists were able to test their methods side-by-side in the moi (Polydactylus sexfilis), which led to some clear conclusions abot the relative benefits of each method. Thus the 1992 Edwin Pauley Summer Program had helped integrate the highly specialized knowledge of fish biology being generated in Japan, Israel, and the United States. Another valuable product of the program was the exposure of graduate students to the rich mix of working scientists that were present. In several cases, new options for further study and training were set up through such contact. An excellent series of seminars - at times as many as three a week - was open to the public and was well-attended by the Coconut Island faculty, scientific staff, and on several occasions by employees of the Oceanic Institute, thereby extending the dissemination of knowledge well beyond the two host laboratories.
