WA SCALLOPS INDUSTRY
Simon is the Sales and Marketing Manager for Far West Scallops, a company owned and operated by Simon’s family. Far West was founded by Simon’s parents in 1983 with a single boat operating in Shark Bay and is now Australia’s largest fisher and processor of scallops. Far West owns the majority of the scallops fishing licenses in Western Australia, five trawlers and one of Australia’s finest seafood processing facilities.
Simon has worked at Far West for approximately twelve year. In this time, he has managed the introduction of mechanised grading in the factory, introduced individually quick frozen scallops, developed new retail products and negotiated the founding of West Pacific Scallops, a fishing company established in collaboration with the North Provence Government of New Caledonia and the local community of Belep. Prior to joining Far West, Simon had a varied career that included seafood import, business banking and business consulting.
