Hall of Fame

Dr Gerald R. Allen

Member of the Australian Society for Fish Biology

Gerry Allen has had a long-standing involvement with the Australian Society for Fish Biology, including having served as the seventh President of the Society from 1979 to 1981. He received K. Radway Allen Medal in 2004 in recognition of his outstanding scientific contributions to Ichthyology and he was awarded life membership of the ASFB.

Gerry is considered one of Australia’s prominent Ichthyologists. During his career, he has  focused on the systematics, biogeography and ecology of Indo-Pacific coral reef fishes and freshwater fishes of Australia and New Guinea. To date, he has 437 publications, including 32 books and 312 papers on marine and freshwater fishes.

Born in Los Angeles Dr Allen obtained his PhD in marine zoology from the University of Hawaii in 1971. He was enticed by Australia’s diverse yet poorly documented coral reef fauna, moving with his wife to Sydney in 1972 to work as an Ichthyologist at the Australian Museum. In 1974 he moved to Perth to begin a long and productive career as Curator of Fishes at the Western Australian Museum. Leaving the museum in 1997, Dr Allen moved to Conservation International working as a Science Team Leader undertaking coral reef fish surveys in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines until 2003.

Currently Dr Allen is a Research Associate of the Western Australian Museum and a consultant to Conservation International, World Wildlife Fund and the Nature Conservancy. Dr Allen is a member of a number of professional societies. He was the first Australian to be an Honorary Foreign Member of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists and he is a Patron of the Australia New Guinea Fishes Association. Throughout his career, Dr Allen has travelled extensively and has logged over 7500 dives, predominantly in the Indo-Pacific region.

His passion for SCUBA diving, in conjunction with a keen interest in underwater photography, has led to hundreds of his photographs appearing in a broad range of international publications. Other interests and pursuits outside the marine environment include bird watching, rock climbing, mountaineering and bicycle racing, for which he has been eight-time state veteran champion.


Dr Allen remains very active in describing new species. Last year he described 15 new species from the ASFB Newsletter Volume 39 (# 1) 36 June 2009 Bird's Head region of Western New Guinea. In a novel approach to raising funds for conservation, Conservation International auctioned off the naming rights for 10 of the species. The event was hosted by Prince Albert of Monaco and Christie’s Auction House of London and took place in Monaco in September last year. The auction raised 2.1 million dollars for Conservation International’s Bird's Head Conservation Project, with Prince Albert buying the rights to one of the species’ names. A portion of the m oney was also invested in scholarships for Indonesian marine science students.

Dr Allen’s most recent achievements include mapping and analysing the distributions of all Indo-Pacific coral reef fishes. This research included analysing the distribution patterns of 3919 species and prioritising areas of exceptionally high diversity and endemism for conservation (Allen 2007). Currently he is working on a two-volume work on Coral Reef Fishes of the East Indies that will cover more than 2,500 species.
