Jackson receives award
Donald Jackson, a professor in Mississippi State University’s Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture, has received the C.A. Schultz Conservation award from the American Fisheries Society. Jackson, a Sharp Distinguished Professor of Fisheries, received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Arkansas and his doctorate from Auburn University. Since 1986, he has conducted research and taught in MSU’s Forest and Wildlife Research Center.
Jackson has been active in the American Fisheries Society for several years. He has served as president of the Mississippi and the Southeast regional chapters and as the society’s national president. Ten years ago, he helped develop the C.A. Schultz award to honor his friend and mentor. Schultz was one of the first fisheries biologists hired by the Mississippi Game and Fish Commission in 1958, and he gained a widespread reputation for his knowledge, insight and respect for nature.
