Head of Fisheries and Aquaculture
Sam manages a team of dedicated experts and ‘fish geeks’ who work to improve the health of our seas through communicating science, influencing Government policy and changing consumer and business buying practices with our Good Fish Guide. Sam joined MCS in 2012 as a Fisheries Officer, and in 2015 became Programme Coordinator before taking on his current role. Prior to MCS, Sam ran industry projects in Australia to reduce impacts of commercial fishing gear and he also worked as a Commonwealth Fisheries Observer where he spent time living and working on-board prawn trawlers and longline vessels. Sam has an Honours Degree in Applied Marine Science and when he’s not working, Sam is most likely to be hanging out at, surfing on, diving in or eating fish from our seas.
