Matt is working on novel approaches to the enhancement of recreational and commercial fisheries. One of the major approaches to fisheries enhancement is through releasing fish that have been reared in captivity into waterways. Matt’s research focuses on assessing stocking density and developing release techniques to suit the biology and behaviour of different fish species. Matt aims to instill in the next generation a sense of individual responsibility to contribute to the survival of the planet and its ecosystems.
