If you want independent and fair scientific guidance on assessment and management of fish stocks, this is what I can do for you:

Working as a one-man business, I am available for assignments:

  • as stand-alone jobs or as participant in project teams
  • at a reasonable price.


Main fields:

  • Fish stock assessments:
    • Evaluate data, outline limitations and suggest improvements.
  • Advise on methodology
  • Perform assessments

    • Management strategies:
      • Design and simulation testing of decision rules
  • Provide simulation software
  • Evaluate proposed rules with respect to performance and compatability with international standards

    • Teaching and training in fish stock assessment and managment advice
    • Participation in, or chairing assessment teams and working/study groups
    • Review of assessment and management plan evaluation work
    • Advise on likely developments in stocks and fishing opportunities.


    Key principles for my work:

    • Fair, neutral, balanced
    • Know what really matters and stick to essentials
    • Know the limitations and find solutions
    • Dialogue
    • Get the job done.
