MSA Past President and Hatchery Manager
Mark Hambrook

Born and raised on the Miramichi in Renous, Mark graduated from the University of New Brunswick and began his career as a fish technician with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). After seven years, he was promoted to the role of biologist and began managing the fish hatchery in South Esk. Mark worked at DFO for over 18 years.

When the federal government announced the closure of the hatchery in 1997, Mark partnered with the MSA as a private investor to acquire the hatchery from DFO. Through the Miramichi Watershed Management Committee, the MSA assumed full operation of the hatchery in 2000. Mark took on the role of MSA President and continued to guide the hatchery’s operations for the next two decades.
