Many of Sandra’s passions have found a home in Happy Fish: food, people, environmental sustainability.
A background in architecture proves useful to generating creative solutions to the complex ocean-to-plate ecosystem, and collaborating with diverse disciplines and stakeholders.
Sandra has a deep-held conviction that everyone benefits through sustainable practices…What’s good for fish, is good for the ocean, fishers, seafood sellers and ultimately consumers! It’s WIN:WIN:WIN…
Sandra’s hooked on the industry’s earthy passionate characters, the unlikely synergies being formed and the awesome people gravitating to this platform. She’s excited about creating opportunities to anchor Happy Fish in the best marine science, industry expertise and creating networks built on trust
PROF DAVID BOOTH
In the lab, on the high seas, and under the waves shepherding schools of human fish
As Professor of Marine Ecology at UTS, David is also passionate about educating the broader community. His many hats include: coordinating citizen-science projects, a member of Ocean Science Council of Australia, past President of the Australian Coral Reef Society and of particular relevance to Happy Fish…co-founder of SASAP (Sustainable Australian Seafood Assessment Program) devised by Australia’s leading fisheries scientists, it’s the gold standard of seafood assessment programs.
David’s opinion is frequently sought by the press on topical marine issues. He’s not coloured by industry affiliations and will comment where many will not. His views are informed by a deep scientific understanding and wealth of practical experience
It’s a great privilege to have David on board to ensure our fish assessments are maintained and evolve with the benefit of his extensive knowledge and networks
A leader, influencer, surfer, outdoorsman and a delight to work with.
With an MBA and nearly 20 years experience in design and manufacturing for several iconic Australian companies, he understands the peculiarities of cause-led enterprises, youth market and has extensive experience in supply chain modelling. This unlikely pedigree couldn’t suit Happy Fish better!
His role involves navigating the sweet spot of mission and self-sustaining enterprise, and as he likes to say “break” the tracking system- in order to rebuild it with the most digitally challenged in mind. His superb people skills, considerable knowledge in processes and data have been indispensable in steering a safe course during the delicate pre-pilot stage.

Camille is a water baby and feels most at home in the ocean, scuba diving, surfing and swimming. She loves Australia and Happy Fish! Back in France she was a junior synchronised swimming champion and academic over achiever.
Camille assisted in developing the Happy Fish sustainability criteria and assessments guidelines. No doubt Camille’s French pedigree assisted in her understanding of provenance and creation of a structure to capture Happy Fish provenance .
