I work as the State Fishcare Volunteer Coordinator with PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture and have the honour of working with the Fishcare volunteers from right across South Australia
Time in the Seafood Industry: 11 years
What I love about my role:
Working with a passionate group of volunteers from all walks of life, and educating fishers about the rules for recreational fishers in the State. I get to spend some of my time out on jetties, boat ramps and at local events spreading the word.
Thoughts about the Industry:
I think education is going to be key moving forward. This includes educating fishers about the reasons we have rules in place and explaining the science behind these rules. And educating the general public about Commercial fishing practices.
