What I love about my seafood industry – I love the passion in and around the Industry. I am constantly amazed at the unwavering dedication that is the Seafood Industry. I love the fact that even when you are in your 80’s you can still make a valued contribution.

Most interesting moment– Meeting and sharing lunch with the Hon Julie Bishop MP.

Thoughts about my industry- I wish that the general public had a better perception of the commercial fishing industry and its hard working staunch men and women who make a valued contribution to not only our economy but to the health of our waterways and our people through eating their delicious produce.
