Bill's research interest's are varied and include shellfish production and husbandry, finfish culture, salmonid culture and copepods. He has received funding from many sources including Science Council of BC, CIDA, MUC research funds, BCMAFF, BC Ministry or Education, SSHRC and AquaNet. He has over thirty publications, many reflecting the applied nature of his research endeavours. Bill is first and foremost an educator. He was instrumental in the development of the aquaculture programs at MUC and works continuously with the BC aquaculture industry to ensure the program graduates are trained appropriately to meet the needs of the industry. The technical diploma, the BSc and the international programs offer courses on the undergraduate level and graduate level in conjunction with UBC, OSU and several other international universities. As well, MUC delivers many industry-focussed workshops and Bill has been very proactive in the dissemination of aquaculture information and knowledge to the finfish, salmonid and shellfish industry in BC and internationally. Recently, Bill was the driving force behind the initiation, development and successful funding of a new Centre for Shellfish Research at MUC, where he received a sizable grant from CFI. The Centre will the focus of research, education and technology transfer for the BC shellfish industry and the Centre will work closely with industry, students, the BC Shellfish Growers Association and DFO researchers, something Bill has promoted all through his career in aquaculture. In summary, Bill is a long-time shellfish aquaculturist at Malaspina University College. He is a former President and board member of the AAC and has organised and assisted many AAC meetings. He is a shellfish and finfish researcher who has worked closely with the BC shellfish and salmonid growers.

According to Bill Pennell, Acting Director of the ICR and Malaspina's Honorary Research Associate with the Faculty of Science & Technology, the symposium is the first public event organized by Malaspina's new ICR which aims to "facilitate a wide spectrum of academic activities related to the BC Coast and its peoples."
"Our main goal is to encourage the development of interdisciplinary activities within Malaspina and with our coastal communities, and create educational opportunities for students," he added. "We hope to include faculty and students from arts and humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, as well as members of our research partner institutions, and people in our communities." The concept for the ICR was created in 2001, and space for the institute was included on the fourth floor of Malaspina's new Library in 2005 adjacent to Malaspina's Research and Scholarly Activities Office. The well-appointed facility includes a computer lab, offices and meeting rooms that are available to visiting scholars and graduate students, as well as Malaspina students and faculty for communication and research purposes. Pennell as Acting Director, said the ICR has a Steering Committee, and recently formed an external Advisory Committee. Already the ICR has four publications in preparation, five research proposals submitted and several other activities in the planning phase. Malaspina has also applied for funding for its third Canada Research Chair, which if approved, would focus on interdisciplinary research on coastal resource management issues. Asked why the work of the ICR is important, Pennell said, "In BC, we tend to approach resource management issues in a somewhat polarized fashion. Issues often become controversies with not enough room for discussion. When controversies erupt in this way, it's an inefficient way of dealing with the real problems and postpones the finding of solutions that will benefit coastal communities. "Through the ICR, we're hoping to find a better way of dealing with these issues by organizing interdisciplinary teams - perhaps a biologist, sociologist, political scientist, economist and maybe a philosopher - who will work together with coastal communities, industries and management agencies to try to identify the real concerns behind the issues and seek positive solutions." Pennell said the ICR's first symposium will feature two key note speakers during the morning session, including well-known economist Dr. Rod Dobell of the University of Victoria, who will present an overview of Interdisciplinary Research in BC, with special reference to resource issues on the BC coast.
