On 1 May, Professor James Muir, formerly of the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling passed away.
Muir was a founding member of the Science and Partnership Advisory Committee of the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish.
Writing on behalf of the program, ILRI director general Jimmy Smith expressed his deep sadness on learning of his passing. “James had immediately begun engaging in his role with the program and we were already beginning to benefit from his extensive knowledge and experience in aquaculture research. We will sorely miss him.”
