Technical Oversight Committee is supported by a reviewer and technical oversight committee of representatives with expertise in developing and evaluating fishery improvement projects.

The reviewer ensures that FIP profiles on the website are accurate and provide full documentation and evidence of their status and progress. This includes working one on one with FIP implementers to improve the quality and consistency of progress reporting.

The technical oversight committee is a team of experts that provides input on FIP reviews where necessary, spot checks FIP data to ensure consistency, and reviews appeals and makes recommendations for the advisory committee’s consideration.

Members of the technical oversight committee are:

Albert Arthur, Reviewer, FishChoice

Jesse Marsh, Principal, Scaling Blue

Amanda Stern-Pirlot, Director of Fisheries Certification, MRAG Americas

Sian Morgan, Regional Director for the Americas, SCS Global Services

Patricia Bianchi, Policy Manager, Marine Stewardship Council
