Walter Starck

Walter has a PhD in marine science including post graduate training and professional experience in fisheries biology. His reef experience includes some 50 years of fishing and diving on coral reefs including those in the eastern, central and western Pacific areas as well as the Indian Ocean and tropical western Atlantic region. He has had the opportunity to study two reefs every year for 10 years each. One was in Florida the other on the GBR. He has also been able to extensively dive reefs in both overfished areas and sustainably fished ones as well as a number of remote un-fished oceanic reefs. His Barrier Reef experience includes over 1000 dives ranging from far northern Cape York to the Capricorn group at the southern end of the GBR.
