Australian Fishing Industry Pioneer Bob Mostyn has passed away

The Australian fishing industry lost one of its renowned pioneers last week. Bob Mostyn, former managing director of the major seafood exporter Craig Mostyn and Co, died at the age of 93. He facilitated a fascinating and illuminating trip for me on the maiden voyage of the company’s then new and revolutionary prawn trawler F/V Karumba Norman, skippered by the redoubtable “Paddles” Taylor, from Bundaberg to Karumba. I then crewed on several of its early fishing voyages in the Gulf during mid-1969. I will always be grateful to him for that experience that taught me so much about this industry. >click to read< 12:21
