“Science should underpin science communication. Science alone is insufficient just as communicating weak or flawed science is counterproductive. Messaging should be tailored to the audience with a good dose of enthusiasm and imagery (figurative language or actual images) while always noting where the science ends and opinion begins.” – Steven J. Cooke, Professor of fish ecology and conservation physiology, Canada Research Chair
