ANCORS to feature on Four Corners program
The fisheries governance expertise of UOW’s Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS) is demonstrated in tonight’s ABC-TV program Four Corners, which features ANCORS Senior Research Fellow Dr Quentin Hanich.
Dr Hanich leads the ANCORS Fisheries Governance Program and talks with Four Corners on the international challenges to the sustainable management of the world’s oceans.
Tonight’s program will focus on the ‘super trawler’ which was expected to revolutionise the fishing industry in Australia.
However, now it sits silent banned from plying its trade in Australian waters.
The program will focus on the negotiations that led an international syndicate to bring the massive trawler, The Margiris, to Australia, and the conservation and management challenges that super trawlers such as the Margiris have created from West Africa to Australia.
The ANCORS Fisheries Governance Research Program uses the extensive experience and skills of ANCORS staff to research and develop practical solutions to ongoing fisheries management and development challenges.
The Fisheries Governance program works widely throughout the Asia-Pacific region and beyond, working closely with regional fora, governments and stakeholders.
With an extensive track record in applied research and governance and development consultancies, ANCORS has developed a strong regional network and a sophisticated understanding of the practical application of research methodologies in a variety of cultural environments.
ANCORS’ staff and research fellows are engaged as expert advisors and counsels to government agencies, international fora and fisheries stakeholders.
The recognition of ANCORS expertise as fisheries governance experts is increasingly at the forefront with regular stories and interviews in the ABC Drum, The Conversation, ABC Radio National, Sydney Morning Herald, Pacific Islands Business,The Financial Review, and other global media.
The program goes to air tonight on ABC 1 at 8.30pm. It is replayed on Tuesday 23 October at 11.35pm. It can also be seen on ABC News 24 at 8pm Saturday, ABC iview and at abc.net.au/4corners.
