Life Member, LegaSea, Fisheries Management & Public Relations
Scott has engaged and participated in a wide variety of fisheries management processes and advocacy roles for over 20 years. He works hard on building teams and capacity. His knowledge is sought after and valued. He and his wife Judy are both active conservationists, committed to restoring abundance to both fish and bird abundance. He strives to practise manaakitanga at every opportunity - building unity through humility and hospitality,
Scott’s Auckland home has served as a meeting place since 2001. It is from here that the Kahawai Legal Challenge, the Hokianga Accord and more recently, the LegaSea initiative have been coordinated. The focus is on alignment and cooperation - only by having as many relevant representative organisations working closely together can we expect to achieve the broad based public awareness of the changes that need to be made to achieve restored abundance and a fair go for future generations.
He is well supported and grounded by his fellow committee members at the Warkworth Game Fishing Club - www.warkworthgamefish.co.nz
