The A.G. Huntsman Award was established in 1980 by the Canadian marine science community to recognize excellence of research and outstanding contributions to marine sciences. It is presented by the Royal Society of Canada. The award honours marine scientists of any nationality who have had and continue to have a significant influence on the course of marine scientific thought.
The Award is named in honour of Archibald Gowanlock Huntsman (1883–1973), a pioneer Canadian oceanographer and fishery biologist.

The A.G. Huntsman Award, a specially-designed and engraved sterling silver medal, is presented by the Royal Society of Canada during a ceremony at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. As well, the recipient delivers a distinguished lecture in his or her field of specialty.
