  • MORRISSY (Dr. Noel):

    My mentor and friend. I first joined Fisheries Research in 1972 and so began 21 years as a technical officer under Noel's guidance. Many field trips and years of friendship that endured to the end. The father of freshwater aquaculture in Western Australia. I also had a message of condolences from Prof. Claude Boyd (ret), Auburn Uni, Alabama.

  • MORRISSY (Dr. Noel):

    Noel was a legend and revered figure when i joined the WA Fisheries Department in the early 1990's.

    Within the newly formed Fish Health Laboratory his expertise and generous advice was instrumental in our understanding of Freshwater aquaculture particularly trout and marron production.

    A pioneer and iconic Research Scientist fondly remembered.
