Putting people at the center of solutions is crucial to ensure healthy fisheries

Behind every single seafood dish you have ever eaten is a chain of hands that helped bring that gift from the sea to our plates, often starting with men and women in small-scale fisheries.

Welcome to EDFish!

Tom Lalley, EDF Oceans Marketing and Communications Director EDFish is the new voice of EDF’s Oceans program.  We have so much to say and share during this exciting time for the oceans and, in particular, fisheries. Blogs have emerged as one of the most efficient ways to communicate, so we’re using this vehicle to facilitate dialogue and keep you informed of our work with fishermen, fishery managers, policy makers and the entire community of those concerned about healthy oceans and coastal communities. We have big plans for EDFish so please check back often to see how this site changes and what our staff and friends are up to.

EDFish will cover the full breadth of work and activities of the Oceans program.  While our work is primarily focused on oceans policy, we also want to highlight the personalities and knowledge of our incredible staff.  That means not only the latest information on policy, but also a good dose of lighter features on staff travels, tidbits on natural history and news about the many ways people use the Oceans.  And we want to hear from you, whether you agree with us or not.  There’ll be plenty of opportunity to speak your mind.
