Biography

After 15 years studying the social science of Queensland fisheries, Dr Renae Tobin has recently embarked on a new adventure with husband Dr Andrew Tobin, selling local seafood with a story, through their seafood and fish and chip store ‘Tobin Fish Tales’.

Through her research, she has developed an in-depth knowledge of the Queensland seafood industry, an understanding of public perception of the industry, and a sense of the desire of consumers for local seafood. Using this knowledge and the links she and Andrew have developed with the commercial fishing industry, Renae is striving to rebuild the connection between wild catch commercial fishers and the Australian public.
