Professor, Department of Statistics

Description

The speaker will present his perspective on the tumultuous events that followed his receipt last fall of a report of positive test results for the infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAv) in Rivers Inlet sockeye salmon. The account will include the immediate reaction, subsequent revelations, and results from follow-up sampling.

The story will highlight instances of what the speaker views as a serious disregard for the role of scientific evidence in the development of governmental policy - and consequent, unacceptable risks to wild Pacific salmon. The presentation will conclude with a proposal for organizational reform aimed at promoting the role of scientific research in the protection of wild Pacific salmon.
