Prof Adams, the chair of the society, was awarded the Silver medal at the gala dinner on 1 July. Having been president of the society for the past four years she has handed over the position to the vice-president Prof Nico Smit.

According to the SASAqS Constitution a Silver medal shall be awarded irregularly in recognition of the exceptionally high standard of a specific piece of research in the aquatic sciences or of the exceptionally high standard of a particular contribution to the management, conservation or development of aquatic ecosystems or resources.

We are proud of Prof Adams for her latest award.

Congratulations Janine.
