Reserve Allstar: Jacques Cousteau’s Mike Kennish

Jul 7, 2017 | Healthy Habitats, Jacques Cousteau, New Jersey

Mike Kennish, Research Coordinator at New Jersey’s Jacques Cousteau NERR and research professor at Rutgers University, has been endorsed by Marquis Who’s Who as a leader in the coastal and marine sciences field.
This premier publisher of biographical profiles has cited Mike for his outstanding contributions to the field of estuarine, coastal, and marine sciences. As the recipient of the publication’s 2017 Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, Mike has been recognized for his seminal research of anthropogenic effects on estuarine, coastal, and marine environments, and his numerous scholarly books and other publications that have served to educate a generation of young scientists.

“I have been fortunate to be part of a talented and innovative group of research coordinators in the NERRS who are  engaged in critically important investigations of the most complex and challenging environmental issues facing the nation today,” says Mike. “It has been rewarding to be part of a concerted effort of the research coordinators to support science-based decision-making needed to effectively restore, maintain, and protect these coastal environments.”

We always knew he was an all star, now everyone else knows, too; way to go Mike!
