Office phone: 604-822-1201
Web page: Home page
Research area: Ecology, Evolution
Lab Members: D. Al-Abdulrazzak, B. Bhathal, L. Boonzaier, L. Brotz, R. Govender, L. Schiller
History: Master (1974), Doctorate (1979) and 'Habilitation' (1985) in Fisheries Biology and Biological Oceanography (University of Kiel, Germany).

Dr. Pauly became a professor at UBC’s Fisheries Centre in 1994, after many years at the International Centre for Living Aquatic Resource management (ICLARM); now WorldFish Center, then in Manila, Philippines.

Dr. Pauly’s scientific output, mainly dedicated to the management of fisheries, and to ecosystem modeling, comprises numerous contributions to peer-reviewed journals, authored and edited books, reports and popular articles, and the concepts, methods and software he (co-) developed are in use throughout the world (see his profile in Google Scholar). This applies notably to the ecosystem modeling approach incorporated in the Ecopath software (see www.ecopath.org), to FishBase, the online encyclopedia of fishes (see www.fishbase.org), and the global mapping mapping of fisheries trends (see www.seaaroundus.org).

In 2001, Daniel Pauly was awarded the Murray Newman Award for Excellence in Marine Conservation Research, sponsored by the Vancouver Aquarium, and the Oscar E. Sette Award of the Marine Fisheries Section, American fisheries Society. He was named Honorary Professor at Kiel University, Germany in the fall of 2002, elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (Academy of Science) in spring 2003, and became one of UBC’s ‘Distinguished University Scholars’ in mid-2003. The December 2003 issue of Scientific American listed him a one of the year’s “50 Research Leader.”

In 2004, he received the American Fisheries Society Award of Excellence, the Roger Revelle Medal from IOC/ UNESCO, and the Edward T. LaRoe III Memorial Award of the Society of Conservation Biology. In 2005, he received the International Cosmos Prize, from the Expo '90 Foundation, Japan, and in 2006, the Volvo Environment Prize (shared) from the Volvo Foundation, Sweden. In 2007, he received the Excellence in Ecology Prize from Inter-Research, Germany, and the Ted Danson Ocean Hero Award from Oceana, an international environmental organization, and, in 2008, the Ramon Margalef Prize from the Government of Catalonia (Spain). In 2012, he received the Grand Prix 2011 of the French Ecological Society, and the Nierenberg Award for Science in the Public Interest for the Scripps Institution for Oceanography in La Jolla, California.

Dr. Pauly is the recipient of five honorary doctorates: from the Aristotle University of Thessanoniki, Greece (2005), the Université de Montréal (2007), the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, Wageningen Universiteit, The Netherlands (2008) and the Universidade del Algarve, Faro, Portugal (2010).
