Sector Recreational Fishing

Emergency Medicine Physician, marine science background, enthusiastic coastal recreationalist.

“My task is to ensure we place marine protection in areas that will least affect recreational fishers, and where possible use marine protection to enhance recreational fishing opportunities. Recreational fishers can be conservationists too, and my hope is that fishers embrace this opportunity to restore and preserve portions of our stunning coastal environment.”
