Andrew Rowland

Andrew Rowland studied at Murdoch University and has a PhD in Fisheries Science. He has been the chief executive of Recfishwest since 2012 and a director of Fishability (formally Fishers with Disabilities Association). Mr Rowland is also a member of the Recfishing Research Steering Committee which provides advice to the FRDC. He also sits on the Certification Advisory Body of the WA MSC initiative and is a member of the Premier’s Marine Science Roundtable. Mr Rowland believes that recreational fishing provides significant social, cultural, health and economic benefits to WA and is passionate about maintaining and building this value for the benefit of the whole community. He understands that natural resource management requires striking a balance between competing user groups, and various (often diverse) stakeholders in protecting the resource which they value. A key component to achieving the right balance is ensuring the interest and values of West Australians who enjoy fishing are effectively represented to protect and develop great fishing experiences.
