MEETING – THURSDAY, FEB 21st, 2008 – 7:00 PM

Our presenter for this meeting, Andrew Boghen, is a professor of biology at the Université de Moncton. His area of expertise is aquaculture and he regularly travels abroad to attend meetings, to meet with colleagues, to visit aquaculture installations, and sometimes, to simply take well-deserved vacations. Last summer, he and his wife spent some time vacationing in the Tuscany region of Italy. He will present some of the images he took during his stay in that picturesque part of the world and entertain us with stories of crisscrossing the countryside, attending the famous horse race in Sienna, and generally enjoying la dolce vita.
Professor Boghen will be introduced by Stephan Reebs.
