Information: Finlay joined the Oceanic Fisheries Programme in 2018 to work on developing harvest strategies for key tuna stocks in the western and central Pacific Ocean. This work includes running Management Strategy Evaluation simulations to develop robust management procedures and harvest control rules. Finlay is also involved in stakeholder engagement and capacity building across the region and is particularly interested in science communication and data visualisation.

After gaining a BSc in Cybernetics from the University of Reading, Finlay completed an MSc in Environmental Technology at Imperial College, London. He then tried working in a proper job for a very short time before returning to academia to complete a PhD in mathematical population biology at the University of East Anglia. Lured into the dynamic world of fisheries science, he worked at Cefas, Lowestoft and the European Commission in Ispra, Italy before moving to SPC and Noumea.
