David Powter

I am a Senior Lecturer at the Central Coast Campus of the University of Newcastle with a background in marine ecology and biology. I have a long held fascination for the ocean and its organisms and this lead me to diving almost 30 years ago. A significant part of this is a strong interest in sharks and rays in terms of understanding their life histories as well as their conservation and management needs. My research focusses mainly on coastal sharks and rays, with a particular emphasis on the Port Jackson shark.
