Daniel Stoessel

I grew up in rural NSW, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, camping and fishing along the northern tributary rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin. My interest in fish ecology was triggered by this close association with the river, and in particular by my maternal grandfather, a keen fisherman himself, who would often relay stories of the decline in the health of rivers and native freshwater fish he had witnessed over his life. This triggered a life-time interest in fish ecology, and a desire to play some small part in conserving and improving the status of native fish species for the next generation.  Starting as a technical assistant in 1999 for the then Victorian Natural Resources and Environment, I now work as a Scientist (Fish Ecologist) for the Arthur Rylah Institute in Victoria.
