Over 35 years of experience in aquaculture, mostly warm, fresh water, with special interest in Africa and linking research and extension services to promote aquaculture as business. 


A particular expertise in building a team of highly motivated and service-oriented individuals in the countries where I work. Although I often manage research projects.


I prefer to work in production, training and on-farm technical backstopping. I have 20 years of long-term assignments in Africa.
