In recent years my work has mainly involved providing scientific support for the implementation of Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management (EBFM) in small (< 1000 t) to intermediate (<10,000 t) sized Australian coastal fisheries. This has included fisheries using a range of gear types (e.g. trap, trawl, gillnet, line, purse-seine, hand-collection) and exploiting a diverse range of species (e.g. crabs, prawns, lobsters, shellfish, cephalopods, teleosts, sharks). In addition to the practicalities of implementing EBFM in fisheries for different species, size and scale, I have a general interest in overall level of environmental impact of fisheries managed under EBFM frameworks and how they compare to other modes of food production.
