9 Nov November 9, 2016 in Aquaculture Operations AssistantAndavadoaka, MadagascarBen joined the aquaculture team at an exciting time in late 2016, to assist with the construction of new sea cucumber pens and watchtowers in Tampolove. He brings with him years of building experience and a passion to learn about aquaculture and contribute to the sustainability of fisheries following BSc degrees in Zoology, Marine Science and a PGDip in International business. Growing up in the South Island of New Zealand he has always had a passion for exploring the natural environment from the mountains, to the sea. Much of his free time has been spent diving the coast line and snowboarding remote ski-fields. Now, he is trying to transit these skills onto the surfboard in Madagascar… with little success.
