Resilient fisheries, resilient ecosystems, resilient communities. The term “resilience” has such a positive connotation that I find that it is often sprinkled among research interests, objectives and outcomes like cayenne pepper in a spicy chili recipe. A pinch of resilience here, a dash of sustainability there. Until recently, I took that as the recipe for a well-managed fishery. Until recently, I took the definition of resilience for granted.

As difficult as it is for me to present a scientific presentation, I cannot fully comprehend what it must be like to present in another language. We did, however, have a bit of a window into the difficulties of communicating across language barriers this week at Институт Биологии Внутренних Вод (Institute of Biology of Inland Waters) in Borok, Russia.

For those outside of the field, studying one genus of fishes seems like a very narrow discipline.  But, for the organizers of the seven international charr symposiums, there was not enough collaboration and information shared even amongst these charr scientists.  So, they decided to hold symposiums every three years to keep apprised of each other’s work. The geneticists can learn from the management biologists, the stock assessment modeler can learn from the morphologist.
