Shane Griffiths

Dr. Shane Griffiths obtained a BSc (Hons Class I) in 1999 and a PhD in 2002 from the University of Wollongong before joining the CSIRO in Cleveland, Qld as a Fish Biologist in 2002 where he worked for 14 years on a diverse research portfolio including fish biology, trophic ecology, ecological risk assessment, ecosystem modelling, and recreational fisheries. In 2016, Shane took a position as Program Leader of the Ecosystem Program at the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission in San Diego, California where much of his current research portfolio focuses on the development, and application of, the quantitative ecological risk assessment tool EASI-Fish (Ecological Assessment for the Sustainable Impacts of Fisheries). This method was developed specifically for data-limited settings to rapidly and cost-effectively identify potentially vulnerable species that require the development of specific management measures, or further data collection to facilitate formal assessment by the IATTC’s Stock Assessment Program. EASI-Fish is now being used in other tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations as an assessment tool for tuna bycatch species.
