My stories for SeafoodSource focus on fisheries science, the environment and technology. Sometimes that means I’m writing about the outlook for fishermen in the latest IPCC climate science report. Sometimes that means I’m looking at the consequences and trends around overfishing. And sometimes that means I’m asking tech researchers about salmon-implanted sensors.

Here is a selection of some of my favorite stories:
