MarinTrust is pleased to welcome environmental scientist and fisheries expert Dr Emily McGregor to the team as Fisheries Manager. As a previous member of the Fisheries Development Oversight Committee, Emily has worked closely with MarinTrust through her role at Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
|“It’s an exciting time to join the MarinTrust team as they grow their reach in this fundamental space within the fisheries value chain. Marine ingredients play central and often unrecognised role in the global food system and MarinTrust’s work to increase responsible supply and production is key to this. I’ve seen the team’s dedication to their work in empowering improvement within this industry and I look forward to supporting the development of the next version of the MarinTrust Standard with the Fisheries Development Oversight Committee.” – Dr Emily McGregor, Fisheries Manager at MarinTrust|
Emily has a PhD from the University of Cape Town where she applied her research to support the implementation of ecosystem based fisheries management in South Africa's sardine fishery. Emily worked at the Marine Stewardship Council focussing on the implementation and revision of the MSC's fisheries standard. More recently Emily held the role of sustainability manager for a global aquaculture company where she developed an interest in improving aquaculture feed systems.
