Volunteer profile: Robert Bishop

October 4, 2013

Robert Bishop, one of our many dedicated volunteers, calls St. John’s, NL home.

He first became involved with the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation in 2008 after discussing ASCF with Dr. Larry Felt, then the only Newfoundland representative on the Board of Directors. Bishop joined the Board in April 2008 and has been a member ever since.

Along with having a deep interest in salmon fishing, Bishop was a fishery biologist early in his working life and has retained that interest. He also has current relevant experience in dealing with investment funds, fund managers, and consultants.

“I stay involved because it’s very rewarding to see the good work performed by the many organizations funded by the Foundation as they make a significant contribution to the protection and enhancement of salmon stocks in a very cost effective manner.”

“The work ASCF does is valuable, rewarding and interesting.”
