Bringing Knowledge and Expertise in: Fisheries Research and international environmental conservation
I am a marine fisheries biologist who initially worked at the largest of the old Sea Fisheries Committees (SFCs), responsible for NW England and N/Mid Wales. I have conducted research on the fisheries for shrimp, lobster, cockles and mussels, and ended up as Chief Officer of that SFC.
I then pursued a second career in international environmental consultancy, and experienced marine environments in numerous countries. I also spent 3 years as Director of Conservation Services at the HQ of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
I am looking forward to contributing to the good work of Sussex IFCA with respect to both fisheries and marine conservation.
