Jonathan Labaree

GMRI, Director of Community Issues

Partnerships are absolutely critical to the work that we do at the Community Department at GMRI. We rely on creating linkages not just with ourselves to agencies, managers, fishermen, and members of the supply chain but also to help create partnerships within those groups so that they come together around issues that are thorny, and sticky to help create common solutions that benefit everybody. 

What we're looking for eventually is to connect the dots between the market place and how people make decisions about purchasing seafood and the sustainability of the resource and the work that happens on the water and all the way through the supply chain to increase the sustainability of our resource and to maximize the benefit that it brings to our coastal communities.
