Christian Brun

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the tragic and untimely death of Christian Brun, Executive Secretary of the Maritime Fishermen’s Union and President of the Canadian Independent Fish Harvester’s Federation, in a motor vehicle accident on December 5, 2016.  A founding member of the Canadian Fisheries Research Network, Christian served on our Board of Directors and actively shaped our research projects, especially the Lobster Node and Project 1.1, believing strongly in the value of the collaborative approach of the Network.  

Christian was a very rare and special individual: highly intelligent, articulate, a passionate advocate for independent fish harvesters and coastal fishing communities, a proud Acadian, published poet, devoted father, and an artistic soul.  Our thoughts are with his daughter, family and friends as we collectively grieve this difficult loss across the country.
