Sandy Davies, Treasurer

Sandy’s work in fisheries started in a fish processing factory in Canada where she witnessed some of the more shady sides of the business. Later, based in the Falkland Islands, she spent four years, mostly at sea, monitoring and watching the industry at work and the catches they took. Sandy then shared her time between Aberdeen in Scotland and Lake Kainji in Nigeria, where she completed her MSc studies before joining the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) to work in international fisheries development.

She has worked and lived in Africa for the last twenty years focusing on fisheries management and governance, sustainable development and regional and international integration. Sandy is a founder member of Stop Illegal Fishing and was part of the team behind the 2015 FishCRIME symposium.
