I have always been interested in the outdoors having spent much of my younger life outdoors. Growing up away from the coast just made me more interested in the seas and fish that lived in them. In high school I developed a passion for angling and fish which naturally led me into ichthyology. Having spent a lot of time rowing on the Kowie river I developed a great interest in estuaries which has led me into to my current area of study.
