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:

Patricia Bianchi, Seaweed Account Manager, Marine Stewardship Council and Aquaculture Stewardship Council

Cameron Dixon, Fishery Consultant, MRAG Asia Pacific

Jesse Marsh, Principal, Scaling Blue

Hannah Norbury, Senior Fisheries Certification Manager, Marine Stewardship Council

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

Gabriela Mc Lean, Deputy Executive Director, CeDePesca
