Short biography
Dr Julian Pepperell is probably Australia’s best known marine biologist, especially in the field of recreational fisheries. Julian is a recognised world authority on billfishes (marlin and sailfish), tuna and sharks, and conducts research on these fishes all over the world. He has been active in marine research for over thirty years and is especially well known for his work in developing the Australian gamefish tagging program. He has written numerous scientific and popular articles on marine fishes including regular marine science columns and feature articles that appear in several national fishing magazines and other publications. Julian’s first major book: ‘Fish Tales’, (Random House), is a collection of fascinating essays on Marine Science. His second book, ‘Fishes of the Open Ocean’ (UNSW Press), won the Whitley Award for best natural history book for 2010 and was short listed in the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards in the category of Science Writing.

Julian is also a keen student of the history of fish and fisheries in Australia. He has recently completed the manuscript for the book ‘Fishing for the Past’, which tells the story of what fish were caught by the earliest Australian explorers, and in what numbers.

Julian is a past President of the Australian Society for Fish Biology and a recipient of the prestigious Conservation Award from the International Game Fish Association.
