Background. It is rare for an ichthyoparasitologist to receive a country’s highest honor, and thus when such a scientist is honored more than once and by different countries the event becomes truly precious. On 29 July 2007, at the recommendation of the Advisory Council of the Order of Canada, Her Excellency the Right Honorable Michaelle Jean, Governor of Canada, announced the eminent Parasitologist and long-time Acta Ichthyologica et Piscatoria Editorial Board member Zbigniew “Bob” Kabata, PhD, DSc (retired, Pacific Biological Station, Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada) as one of 47 new Members of the Order of Canada.
