Sustainable Fisheries Partnership

Big Idea: 

Sustainable Fisheries Project focuses on seafood buyers at the top of the supply chain as the drivers of conservation. Those buyers – who have a vested interest in a healthy fishery – organize buyers, suppliers and fishers throughout the supply chain to ensure a lasting supply of fish.

Jim has worked on fisheries and forests from Asia to the Americas. He’s a seasoned conservation leader with more than 20 years at Conservational International, the UN’s Food & Agriculture Organization, and advisory roles to McDonald’s and Walmart on fish sourcing. Jim studied Ecology at Cambridge and Environmental Economics at the Imperial College in London.
