BIO Review '86.

In addition, the Institute published in 1997 the 25th Anniversary Issue of its "BIO Review '86", edited by Brenda Newman and Michael P. Latremouille which reviews briefly the history of the Institute, founded in 1962, and its advancements. The BIO is somewhat unique in its range of endeavor, and the reviews in that issue touch on advancements in physical, chemical, and biological oceanography; fishery biology and ornithology, marine geology and meteorology, hydrography, cartography, etc. Some specific topics include an historical perspective on marine fisheries management, history of ocean mooring work at BIO, marine oil contamination, photosynthetic picoplankton, physiological energetics of fish, history of BIO navigation research and development, tidal fronts and tidal mixing, ocean climate, and more. Also included are yearly excerpts (highlights) from the BIO Log during 1962-87. The "BIO Review" series was superceded by "Science Review 1987" which, besides chronicling annual progress, includes A history of chemical oceanographic research in the Gulf of St. Lawrence" by P. M. Strain. Correspondence regarding the BIO publications should be directed to the Marine Assessment and Liaison Division, DFO, BIO, P.O. Box 1006, Dartmouth, N.S. Canada B2Y 4A2.
