I have been working in the fields of aquaculture, fisheries and development training since finishing university in 1981 and have had long-term assignments in Zambia, Ireland, Malawi and Bangladesh. From 1996 until present I have carried out a range of short-term assignments as an independent consultant in aquaculture, fisheries and practical training.
