Chris is a Research Scientist based at the Batemans Bay Fisheries Centre where he has led a variety of projects monitoring and mitigating the impacts of water regulation on fish populations. His work also includes research on threatened populations and the migratory history and spawning dynamics of many freshwater and estuarine fishes. Much of his science is interdisciplinary, using a suite of modern research techniques including acoustic telemetry, stable isotope analysis and otolith microchemistry. Chris currently supervises a number of post graduate students at various universities.
