Mark has been involved in a wide range of marine ecology, fisheries and freshwater taonga species research during his 15 years at NIWA. He has a great general knowledge of marine and freshwater species and specialises in shellfish and octopus taxonomy. Mark is regularly involved in fisheries stock assessments, marine biosecurity and biodiversity surveys, and kākahi research. 
Mark’s love for the environment stems from his childhood ramblings in the Tararua ranges, the rivers and lakes that originate from them, and fishing and diving along the Wairarapa coast. He is passionate about kākahi and their welfare.
