Past Student, new fisheries officer for Portland

Fisheries Victoria has a new officer in Portland.Portland resident John Melis-Walsh, is one of nine newly-trained officers to be appointed across the state.He has lived in Portland all his life, aside from a year in South Australia when he was aged six and his time at Deakin University’s Warrnambool campus where he graduated with a Bachelor of Marine Biology.Mr Melis-Walsh said his interest in fisheries and the environment began as a result of his parents’ involvement in numerous conservation groups, getting him out in the field on weekends as early as he can remember."Portland is a beautiful coastline and I’m excited to be based here and looking forward to a long career with fisheries," he said.Fisheries education and enforcement director Ian Parks said the new officers have had 10 week’s training that covered everything from small boat handling to testifying in court."The training has been a comprehensive program to get the officers ready for their role as education and enforcement authorised officers for Fisheries Victoria."The nine new officers join an experienced state-wide team who are the vital front line in our efforts to ensure the sustainability of Victoria’s fish stocks."Mr Parks said the recruitment program began in August last year when 315 applications were received and the shortlisted applicants went through a competitive recruitment process involving psychometric testing, first round telephone interviews, face to face interviews and a scenario based assessment centre.
