A.G. HUNTSMAN AWARD
established in 1980 by the Canadian marine science community to recognize
excellence of research and outstanding contributions to marine sciences.
It is presented by the Royal Society of Canada. The award honours marine
scientists of any nationality who have had and continue to have a
significant influence on the course of marine scientific thought. The
Award is named in honour of Archibald Gowanlock Huntsman (1883– 1973), a
pioneer Canadian oceanographer and fishery biologist.
A.G. Huntsman Award was established through initial principal
contributions from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Natural Resources
Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Association of
Petroleum Producers. Additional endowment was later granted
from the LiFT Family Fund through Gift Funds Canada.
