Retired Canadian fishery officer. I was a commercial fisherman (rockfish and lingcod hook and line, octopus and swimming scallops by diving, and aquarium specimen collection). My technical experience includes 6 years as a part time volunteer and paid fisheries technician, 2 summers as a seasonal fishery officer and guardian, and 27 years as a fishery officer. I have volunteered making observations for Vancouver Aquarium's ling cod egg mass and rockfish surveys. I become involved in international law enforcement information sharing towards combating illegal, unreported and unregulated fisheries during 2017 to 2020, and then retired a second time.

I post video clips from my dives in my Youtube channel.
