EcoWB fisheries experts certified as sustainability techncial consultants by Marine Stewardship Council

We are pleased to report that Pat Livingston and Clayton Hawkes have been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) as technical consultants qualified to assist local fisheries anywhere in the world to prepare for MSC sustainability certification or to conduct Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIPs) to improve sustainability. Pat and Clayton attended training  to learn about the MSC certification standards last fall and then passed a rigorous test to ensure they understood the procedures. They and other EcoWB volunteers are now participating in the Santa Rosalia, BCS, Mexico FIP and are ready to work on other fisheries. EcoWB is embarking on a program to assist with improving fisheries sustainability for the benefit of local communities.
