The Committee

Southern IFCA aim to be seen and heard by routinely engaging with stakeholders, local organisations and the wider public through open meetings, lectures, presentations and attendance at local open days.

The Southern IFCA Committee has 21 members made up of representatives from the relevant constituent authorities, members appointed by the Marine Management Organisation who have demonstrated experience and expertise in the inshore marine area and a standing representative from our partner organisations, the MMO, Environment Agency and Natural England.

Further information on the IFCA Committee and Sub-Committees can be found in the Southern IFCA Standing Orders which can be obtained from the Southern IFCA office on request. Agendas and Minutes for the Full Authority Meeting and the Technical Advisory Committee can be found here.

Ms L MacCallum
Working on marine conservation projects both in the UK and overseas has allowed me to develop an understanding of the intricate beauty of marine life, as well as the economic benefits that healthy seas and a vibrant fishing industry can bring to local people.
I currently work as the Environment Officer for the Langstone Harbour Board. I hope to bring knowledge of the local ports and harbours sector to the discussions at the Southern IFCA, along with my knowledge of the many environmental designations in place to protect the district’s internationally important marine life.

 Dr S Cripps
As an oceanographer by profession I have worked in many marine related fields, but the theme that runs through most prominently is that of marine environment. I have a BSc in Biology from Portsmouth, an MSc Oceanography from Southampton, a PhD in Aquaculture Engineering from Heriot Watt and a Docent (Reader/Associate Prof.) from SLU in Uppsala, Sweden. In my current role I am Chief Executive of Dorset Wildlife Trust, the largest county-based environment NGO in Dorset. I was for 8 years the Global Marine Director for WWF-International based in Geneva working on a range of marine environmental issues including protected areas, fisheries management, conservation and pollution. Prior to that I was Chief Scientist at a large Norwegian research institute (Rogaland Research) for nearly 10 years working mainly for the petroleum and fish-farming industries on fisheries, aquaculture and pollution issues. Before that I worked on sewerage and fish farming in Lulea University in Sweden. As a boat owner and keen recreational fisherman I have a sound knowledge of angling and boating. I was also briefly a commercial inshore fisherman and can set a line of eel fyke nets with the best of them.

Mr N Horsman
I have a science degree and a successful business career, mostly in food manufacturing. I have been an angler all my life with sea angling being particularly important in my early years (in Yorkshire) and for the last few years in Dorset, where I have lived for 9 years. I am now in the fortunate position of not needing to work full time and therefore have the time and energy to devote to angling (among other things) and to explore ways that fish stocks could be better managed for the benefit of all who enjoy them or profit from them.

Prof J Humphreys
I am an independent marine biologist with research interests in inshore ecology and fisheries. I have 20 years experience in the general management and governance of public sector, commercial and charitable organisations in the UK and abroad. Since 2000 my professional focus has increasingly been on the central south coast of England, including aspects of its maritime industries, ecology, and economics. My familiarity with the Southern IFCA district benefits from running a small sampling and survey business operating a commercial workboat from Poole Quay.

Dr A Jensen
Marine ecologist working within Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. Research interests include coastal fisheries, benthic ecology and artificial reefs. Working with Southern IFCA has allowed me to place data into policy discussions, in turn research has developed from questions posed at Southern IFCA meetings.

Mr S Kershaw
I have a technical and practical background spanning several marine sectors, including the water and shipping industries and also for a time as a share-fisherman in the Solent and off the Dorset coast. Since 2001 I have worked for the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) based in Weymouth, my current responsibilities include providing advice to Government and industry at both a local and national level regarding shellfish water quality issues.  I am interested in supporting and helping to develop a fishing industry that has a viable future whilst contributing to the protection and enhancement of the outstanding coastal zone in our District.

Mr R Stride
I am an inshore static gear fisherman operating an 8m boat from Mudeford. I returned to commercial fishing 17 years ago after a career in Fisheries Development in a variety of roles, in projects in Latin America and Africa.

Mr T Legg

I have been employed in the fishing industry for over 40 years. For all of this time I have owned and operated my own boats. My career has spanned commercial fishing and as a charter skipper in the UK and worldwide. This included being held hostage by Columbian terrorists during a particularly eventful trip to Panama

Dr R Morgan
I am a Lead Adviser within Natural England’s Hampshire Coast & Isle of Wight Team, with responsibilities including leading on the team’s fisheries work; marine licensing casework for the Isle of Wight; and managing marine monitoring and research projects.  Prior to joining Natural England in 2013, I completed a PhD at the University of Portsmouth which investigated the economic challenges and response strategies of inshore fishermen in the English Channel.  I am interested in contributing to the development of fisheries that deliver both economic and environmental sustainability.
