With deep sadness, Our IFOP family bids farewell today to whoever was its Executive Director, between the years 1990-1994, a prominent marine biologist and oceanographer, his IFOP colleagues; We remember him as a very intelligent, charismatic and, above all, hard-working man, always aware of everything he had to do with the progress of marine science research.
