Kirsten Abernethy

Executive Director

Dr Kirsten Abernethy started her role as inaugural Executive Officer for Women in Seafood Australasia in January 2022. Kirsten has worked with seafood communities overseas and in Australia for more than 15 years, as a social researcher, teacher and advocate, and she works with her partner in the family fishing business.

Kirsten’s experiences have informed her values of inclusion and collaboration, as well as her focus on working with industry and communities to break down gendered barriers to women, improve seafood workers health and wellbeing, and build community support for the Australian seafood industry.

WISA is working towards ways to better connect with their members and all seafood women across the Australasian Seafood Industry.
