Specialist Business Services
Business and economics research & analysis
I undertake general research and analysis of commercial issues affecting the profitability of the seafood and other
industries. I have a background in economics and mathematics/statistics which equips me well to analyse a diverse
range of economic issues impacting on the seafood and different industry sectors. My experience includes a number
of years as the Economist for the New Zealand Fishing Industry Board (now SeaFIC). I am able to produce high
quality reports, submissions and articles for clients as required.
Marketing of quota/ACE
I have extensive experience in marketing quota/ACE in the seafood industry. I have worked in this area of the
seafood business since the early 1990s. Through this experience I have developed extensive contacts in the seafood
industry. My main clients in this area of my work include Iwi and I market ACE for a number of Iwi clients to the
wider seafood industry on an annual basis.
Valuation of fisheries assets
My work in the valuation of seafood assets is a natural extension of my work as a marketer of quota/ACE. I
undertake this work for a range of clients in the seafood industry who require this kind of information for their
internal business policies, audit and financial/accounting requirements. In addition to valuing quota/ACE, I also
undertake the valuation of marine farms and other fishing assets as required.
Business and strategy planning
I am sometimes asked to assist small Iwi seafood companies to build strategies for the growth and development of
their seafood businesses. This is an area of my work that has evolved over a number of years. I use strategic
planning processes that provide opportunities for maximum input from businesses in the development of their growth
