The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) congratulates Bill Goldsborough on winning an award of excellence in the area of policy and management at the spring 2013 meeting of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission on May 21 in Alexandria, Virginia.

Throughout his three decades as a senior scientist for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Goldsborough has been a steadfast advocate for science-based conservation and a central figure in forging agreements between diverse interests in Chesapeake and Atlantic Coast fisheries management. Most recently, he took a leading role in the campaign to establish a more conservative management framework for menhaden in recognition of their important role as a prey species for striped bass and many other marine resources.
