Joshua Barrow - Science Officer email@example.com I first began working at with otoliths during my Master of Science, where I completed a project focussing on the environmental drivers of growth of Rock Flathead from Corner Inlet. I started working at FAS in 2016 and have performed a range of otolith related work, along with data management. I am also a PhD candidate at Melbourne University, where I am researching the influence of movement and environmental change on the growth of Golden Perch in the Murray-Darling Basin.
Admir Sutrovic - Technical Officer firstname.lastname@example.org During the last year of my Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Deakin University at the Waurn Ponds campus, I was able to complete my placement component at Fish Ageing Services. During this time I was able to work on a range of scientific practices relating to fish and shark ageing. Completing the placement proved to me that it’s a career path I’d like to pursue.
Annique Harris - Science Officer email@example.com I was introduced to the art of fish ageing via otolith examination while completing my B. Sc (Hons) at the University of Melbourne. My research project focused on the environmental drivers of growth in juvenile Australian anchovy in Port Phillip Bay, which lead to my many hours spent dissecting and analysing otoliths. This research gained me recognition at the Western Australian Fisheries, whom I joined to assist in their demersal finfish species stock assessment programs. After spending the last two years working in Middle Eastern marine environmental monitoring and management I have decided to return back to my roots and join the Fish Ageing Services team in Queenscliff.
