Andrew McElwain selected as the runner-up for the best presentation award by the United States Aquaculture Society at Aquaculture 2013
Andrew McElwain was the runner-up for the best presentation award by the United States Aquaculture Society at Aquaculture 2013 (Nashville, Tennessee, 21-25 February) for a presentation based on some of my dissertation results. The presentation was titled, “Cellular anatomy of the digestive tract of Alabama rainbow Villosa nebulosa towards an understanding of trophic bottlenecks to culture and stock enhancement of freshwater mussels,” and the paper includes Dr. Paul Johnson and Dr. Ash Bullard as coauthors. Aquaculture 2013 was the Triennial Meeting of the National Shellfisheries Association, American Fisheries Society Fish Culture Section, and World Aquaculture Society, and I was therefore competing with a large pool of students. The World Aquaculture Society will also announce the award in a forthcoming issue of the “World Aquaculture” magazine.
