The ICES Census of the Fishes Workshop

Colin Bannister
First Paragraph

In the summer of 1997, while I was visiting at Woods Hole, Jesse Ausubel, representing the Sloan Foundation, asked me to approach ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) for help with the Census of the Fishes project. I was then chair of the principal science co-ordinating committee in ICES, and I agreed to take the idea forward.
