Imagine you are spearfishing in a remote location off the Australian east coast and the anchor on your boat breaks free. It drifts away…leaving you stranded in deep water, more than 100 kilometres from land, desperate and close to drowning.
Founder of Jardini International, Jason Coe, found himself in this exact predicament. The situation was dire, but adrenaline kicked in and Jason started swimming for his life. Exhausted and dehydrated, he swan until he thought he could see the boat in the distance. But it always seemed out of reach and perhaps it was just a mirage?
Finally, he reached out and was able to grasp the edge of the boat and pull himself aboard. A barb on the anchor had just managed to catch the very top of a narrow pinnacle of reef arising from depths of 60m, fixing the boat in place.
This moment changed everything for Jason. An engineer by profession, he had always been an avid lover of nature, had an interest in keeping aquarium fish and was a champion spear-fisherman, a sport that focuses on understanding and targeting specific fish.
He completely re-focused his energy on finding ways to fulfil his passion for fish and established Jardini International. Jason is now a recognised go-to person within the industry.
Jason and his team can offer tailored consulting services including:
