David Welch

I am an independent fisheries biologist and an avid spearfisher, who has spent many years living and working in the tropics/sub-tropics of Australia and the Pacific. I have dived extensively throughout these regions especially on the Great Barrier Reef, and I currently reside in Cairns. Through ~30 years of fisheries work and >40 years of underwater fishing across Australia and overseas I have an intimate knowledge of many key fisheries species, and I still spend many hours in the water. I am lucky to be able to say that my work is my passion and I have a keen interest in the role Redmap can play in better understanding movement of marine species.
