Darcy Roeger

Honours student
B.Sc Env. Prac. James Cook University

Darcy is an undergraduate student, soon to complete a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biodiversity Assessment and Management at James Cook University. From a coastal childhood in far northern Australia to field work in Papua New Guinea, his appetite for adventure and interest in cultures continues to motivate his research in sustainable fisheries, human livelihoods, invasive species and ecology.

Darcy is involved in research on coastal fisheries. He is currently working on an assessment of the ecological, social and economic trends associated with the arrival of non-native Mozambique Tilapia in the Kikori River on Papua New Guinea’s southern coast.
