Brice Semmens - 2001

REEF staff were proud to present Brice Semmens with the Volunteer of the Year award for his long time involvement and support of REEF. Brice started his fish counting career in 1993 as an intern with The Nature Conservancy and assisted in the development of the Fish Survey Project. Since then, he has stayed very active as an expert surveyor, a fish identification instructor, and REEF and GAFC webmaster. In 1997, Brice led the West Coast REEF expansion while living in Santa Barbara, California. He has authored and coauthored several scientific publications using REEF data and has developed several analysis tools for REEF’s unique dataset. Brice has conducted surveys in all of REEF’s project regions and is looking forward to many more years as a REEF volunteer.
