River Superintendant

At the age of 17 Jim took up employment with the Don Fishery board as a Bailiff and worked his way up the ladder from bailiff to foreman bailiff to deputy superintendent and finally to superintendent in 2003, when the late Jim Kerr Snr retired as superintendent. Jim has been with the board for 29 years and has gained a lot of experience in all aspects of river and coastal policing, hatchery management and husbandry.

Jim has attended many courses over the years which include, chainsaw, Electro fishing, Conflict Training, Habitat, and FRS courses including Fish Disease Identification.
