"I'm looking forward to helping further GAA's communication programme by expanding the organisation's audience and continuing to spread the good word about the BAP programme. As aquaculture plays a bigger and bigger role in feeding the world's population, the need to communicate the benefits of responsible aquaculture only grows."
