Q&A with Peter Battisti

December 18, 2017
Earlier this summer, our Future of Fish founder Cheryl Dahle handed the Executive Director reins over to Peter Battisti. To mark the occasion, we asked Peter and about his vision for the organization and what we might expect from Future of Fish and the seafood industry in the coming years.

Q: What do you see as the most important issues of the future, and how is Future of Fish addressing them?

The issue that I see as most pressing for all of us who work in wild capture fisheries is to develop solutions for reducing or reversing overfishing. We’re tackling those issues at multiple levels but getting on the ground with our fisheries development work.
