Program Officer, Conservation and Markets Initiatives
Meredith’s focus is on sustainable seafood issues including innovative financing, the exploration of leveraged opportunities and data poor stock assessment solutions. In addition, during her time with the foundation, she has worked on marine spatial planning on the U.S. west coast, exploring how to help ocean industries engage.
Previously, Meredith spent more than a decade working on international marine fishery and market-based conservation solutions at the World Wildlife Fund. As director of the organization’s major buyer initiative, she worked with major seafood buyers, such as Walmart, SYSCO, Kroger and Costco, to secure seafood from environmentally sustainable sources, assess current seafood supply chains for sustainability and use supply chains to improve seafood around the world. Meredith has worked with fisheries globally ranging from small-scale community fisheries to large highly industrial fisheries. Other key accomplishments include helping the first Japanese fishery and tuna fishery to become certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, and playing a lead role in developing of the initial definitions for fishery improvement projects ("FIPs").
