Paul Shaw (Recipient)

Sustainable fisheries management
Professor Paul Shaw’s research has focused on the genetic definition of stock structuring in fished species globally, including tuna in South Africa, toothfish in the Falkland Islands, and closer to home, a distinct seabass stock in Welsh waters of the Irish Sea.
His work has contributed to changes in the management of exploited stocks and Marine Stewardship Council classifications as sustainable stocks.
The research has also provided fishery managers with evidence to lobby national and international authorities for changes to regulations.
His work has led to more accurate, and so sustainable, exploitation of wild stocks, underpinning local and global food security and commercial development, whilst conserving biodiversity and protecting threatened populations and species.
