AUSTRALIAN PRAWN FARMERS ASSOCIATION ELECTS NEW EXECUTIVE

Prawn Farmers elect new executive


August 26, 2010

The Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) has announced its new Executive, with the re-election of Nick Moore as president and Alistair Dick as vice-president. Sharon Pullen, director of Client Services at DKM Group, joins the executive as Treasurer. The elections took place as part of the 2010 APFA and ABFA annual conference earlier this month. Australian Prawn Farms’ farm manager, Matt West, is another newcomer to the executive committee, having been actively involved in the R&D Committee for the past five years. The elected Executive Committee now stands as the following: Nick Moore (Gold Coast Marine Aquaculture), John Molony (Coral Seas Farm), Matt West (Australian Prawn Farms), Alistair Dick (Pacific Reef Fisheries), Warren Lewis (Aquaculture Marine), Trevor Anderson (Seafarm Pty Ltd), Catherine Chen (Monagold Pty Ltd) and Sharon Pullen (DKM Accounting Group). Mr Moore said that the Queensland prawn industry is looking at new ways for farmers to better increase production as well as working through current government regulations and red tape, which is holding them back. “Our farmers need to be given every opportunity to feed beyond Australia, and we will continue to work at making this happen through the aquaculture industry,” Mr Moore said.
