Anton Immink joined SFP as its first global Aquaculture Director in November 2012 and since then has built strong support for improved planning and management of aquaculture sectors around the world, particularly in terms of managing cumulative environmental impacts and shared disease risks. Anton has 20 years’ experience in aquaculture management, spanning commercial, social and environmental projects across Asia (Bangladesh, India, Thailand, and Vietnam) and Africa (Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Uganda); working for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the UK Department for International Development, and Stirling Aquaculture. His original thesis, assessing the social and environmental impacts of grouper cage culture in the mangroves of Thailand, was an early indicator of his desire to foster greater zonal management responsibility amongst all stakeholders–a concept expanded in the SFP Aquaculture Improvement Project model.
