12/06/2017: The Interview: Bill Daniels

Dr William H. Daniels
 Dr William H. (Bill) Daniels, associate professor at Auburn University’s School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences, in Alabama, USA steps up from President-elect to President of the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) this month. 

 He was pronounced President at the WAS’s first meeting of its new African Chapter in Cape Town, South Africa.

 Dr Daniels started his career in aquaculture in 1978 when he joined the US Peace Corps program, run by the United States government, as a volunteer in the area of aquaculture development; the stated mission of the Peace Corps includes providing technical assistance, helping people outside the US to understand American culture and helping Americans to understand the cultures of other countries. 

 Each programme participant is an American citizen, typically with a college degree, who works abroad for a period of at least two years after three months training. 

 Following three years in Africa, Dr Daniels returned to Texas A&M University to complete his Masters and then Mississippi State University for his PhD. He then worked at Delaware State University from 1994 through 2002 and has since worked at Auburn University. 

 His focus on US aquaculture started in earnest in 1984 and he has spent the last 33 years developing his aquaculture interests.
