Our Mission

Fish for People, Fish for the Environment, Fish for the Future

Image by Annie Guttridge

People living in balance between their needs, livelihoods, sustainability, and stewardship, so that sharks, rays, fish, fisheries, and their habitats, are responsibly managed and effectively maintained  for future generations.

Who we

are

The Fish and Fisheries (F&F) Lab is based at James Cook University (JCU) in northern Australia. For over 20 years, the F&F lab has carried out applied research to help guide fisheries management and marine park design and policy, with a particular focus on marine predators such as large fishes and sharks and rays. The lab includes a range of staff and students spread across various locations including the JCU Singapore Campus and the Centre for Sustainable Tropical Fisheries and Aquaculture.

What we do

  • We do research on sharks, rays, fish, and fisheries to help people better manage their seas and oceans.

  • We help train, educate, and build future generations of fisheries and scientists and marine resource managers.

  • We help people to understand the value of sharks and rays, fish, and fisheries so that they can make informed choices about how they use and relate to the ocean.
