Michael Schwarz

Nov. 15, 2013 – Michael Schwarz, an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation and an aquaculture specialist at the Virginia Seafood Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Hampton, Va., is currently serving as president of the World Aquaculture Society, an organization dedicated to the progressive and sustainable development of aquaculture through science, technology, education, and information exchange. During his tenure as president, which runs from February 2013 to June 2014, Schwarz will focus on expanding global representation within the society, with an emphasis on new membership, activities, and interactions within the Middle East and Asia.

“It is indeed an honor and privilege to help guide the World Aquaculture Society, and I fully embrace the trust and responsibility placed upon me to proactively advance the society and its mission during my tenure,” Schwarz said.

Schwarz represents the society as a foundation partner in the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture, a solutions-orientated international exhibition and conference that will focus on sustainable food production in arid regions, which
will take place in Abu Dhabi in February 2014.
