|Title:||Dealing with time: a career in fish and fisheries|
|Journal:||ICES JOURNAL OF MARINE SCIENCE|
|Abstract:||In this essay, I review my career in fish and fisheries, describing my work in the context of the ideas of the period and how they have changed
with time. My experience may be interesting especially for other women from social backgrounds that do not promote competitive careers.
The main lessons that I have learned are that to be persistent and ambitious, to associate with top scientist, and good persons too! is rewarding
at several levels. Not to try to be the one in the spotlight but to recognize other people merits gives good results in the long run.
Moreover, to take risks from time to time and explore new territories, like science administration in my case, helps to reinvent yourself and
keep the intellectual interest alive. I would like to encourage young scientists to persevere, be resilient and take, from time to time, risky decisions.
Maybe one does not become rich, but the mental challenges, the networking, the travel and the exceptional places and life experiences
make you rich in many worthy ways! One does never get bored.||
