About Rob Fish – Fisheries Expert & Advisor

Rob Fish has a rare combination of high level marine biology and fishery management
qualifications, worked within government as fisheries manager, plus over 20 years practical experience in the fishing industry.

management principles and fisheries law and policy. He has

stakeholders, scientists, government agencies,
fishers and managers. He understands the
