Profile - Steve Howe

Steve Howe is a diversified Fisherman and Reef Guardian since 2011.

Steve is also an active member of the Cassowary Coast Local Marine Advisory committee sharing his fishing industry experience to achieve positive outcomes for the Great Barrier Reef.

“I think the Reef Guardian Program is a great platform to share different ideas and different skills that will positively impact on the Reef rather than negatively like proper anchoring practices and waste disposal.

“Working towards a healthier Reef is going to be the ultimate thing I think especially when you can engage the whole community and the recreational fishing fleet, the farmers, the Councils and they are all coming under the Reef Guardian umbrella. 

"I think it [the Reef Guardian program] is going to be a fantastic thing and it’s going to go a long way.”
