NFI Crab Council hires Asian liaison
The National Fisheries Institute Crab Council has hired an Asian liaison to be its primary in-region contact for its projects.
Jeremy Crawford, formerly a business development manager in the blue swimming crab industry, will be a crucial part of growing the council’s sustainability work.
Crawford officially started with the council on 1 April. He previously worked throughout the blue crab value chain on logistics, quality assurance and product safety in India.
As the council’s liaison, Crawford will be responsible for maintaining and building relationships with the local trade associations, government officials and various stakeholders working on fisheries improvements. He will also serve as a resource on blue crab sustainability efforts and work to educate agencies on sustainable crab management practices.
“I’m looking forward to working with a group that is leading the way in blue swimming crab sustainability,” said Crawford. “As the council’s boots on the ground, I’ll work to ensure it has a strong voice that will continue to support and protect this important resource throughout the region.”
