In this special interview episode Allie and Nick speak with Julie Kuchepatov, who works as the Seafood Director at Fair Trade Certified, about her interesting path into that career and why Fair Trade and certification programs are important for both communities who fish and consumers.
In this episode Allie dives into a recently released journal article on using photos and citizen scientists to conduct research and Raye struggles to speak... but also tells us about some new indicators that could be used to help manage overfishing. Finally we invite you to join Team OCTO for the Plastic Free EcoChallenge!
