Major Fisheries Scientist Offers To Donate Scientific Journals

0 Comment

fred_serchukFred Serchuk is a true fisheries scientist.  He  was the U.S. representative on the Scientific Council of the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization, and served on the editorial boards of several scientific journals. He has twice received the U.S. Department of Commerce Bronze Medal for his fisheries science and management achievements, and was honored in 2006 with a NOAA Distinguished Career Award for “outstanding professional contributions to NOAA’s domestic and international activities supporting fisheries conservation and management.” He served as the chief of the NEFSC’s Resource Evaluation and Assessment Division, a research unit with a staff of more than 80 scientists. In 2006, the division received the William E. Ricker Resource Conservation Award, presented by the American Fisheries Society for “outstanding accomplishments in the conservation of  aquatic resources and long-term contributions in providing high quality scientific advice.” And in 2011, Fredric Serchuk, senior science advisor and a longtime fisheries biologist at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) of NOAA’s Fisheries Service in Woods Hole, Mass., was appointed as the U.S. government delegate to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) by the U.S. Department of State.

Now Serchuk has a very large set of scientific journals that he has accumulated over his career.  Some of these span 20-40 years of issues. He would like to donate these journals to an academic institution that wishes to enhance or supplement its scientific holdings.  All he seeks in return is a valuation receipt from the recipient institution so that he can take a tax deduction for the contribution of the journals. (The receiving institution would be responsible for any shipping costs.)
