$1,190 Raised / $4,800 Goal
Grahame Southwick, Owner at The Fiji Fish Marketing Group Ltd, is from the pioneering Storck family who arrived in Fiji in the 1860s, while his father landed in Fiji in 1936 from Australia as a pharmacist. Grahame attended Marist Brothers High School, with a close connection to the sea starting at a very young age.
Grahame’s book, “Hard Day at the Office” (2011) Paperback, 302 Pages, is a narrative that spans almost 70 decades in a light-hearted recap and reminisce of many incidents and anecdotes. The book also provides an interesting historical insight to some key aspects of Fiji’s past, from pre-Cession to the modern day. It also covers several important milestones and events in the evolution of Fiji’s offshore fisheries sector into which he has immersed himself so much.
A NARRATIVE THAT SPANS 70 YEARS
