Healthy Oceans. Healthy Communities.

Jenna Stoner wins fellowship award

January 22, 2015

Jenna Stoner, our Sustainable Seafood Campaign Manager, has been awarded a fellowship by the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions. The fellowship program was launched this year to provide the next generation of leaders for the sustainable seafood sector with the skills they’ll need to protect the dwindling global supply of seafood while allowing fishermen to feed their families along with the rest of the world.

To make that happen on the water, in coastal communities and throughout the seafood supply chain, Living Oceans and other environmental groups will need people who can make progress through the complex web of scientific, regulatory and market forces that influence the industry.

“The fellowship will expand Living Oceans’ network among the sustainable seafood movement in North America,” Jenna said. “The sector has been going for over ten years now and it’s time for us to take it to the next level.”

One of the ways that Living Oceans and the Conservation Alliance are working to meet the global challenge is through community supported fisheries.
