The list is a mixture of very different people, some of them not (directly) contributors to fisheries science, others not notable. For example Ludwig von Bertalanffy, notable in many other ways, but only very indirectly in fisheries science. Then there are people who are missing, like John Gulland, John Pope, and many N Americans. Micromesistius (talk) 12:55, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Be bold and redo the list as you think it should be :) At the moment it just contains people who can remotely be regarded as contributors to fisheries science and have a Wikipedia article written about them. Just remove the dubious ones and redlink the missing ones. --Epipelagic (talk) 13:06, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
