As an avid ocean scientist and communications enthusiast, Juliette has worked in a range of research, marine education and communication roles. As IPNLF's Communication Manager, she focuses on sharing the stories of one-by-one tuna fisheries to inform and engage stakeholders throughout the seafood supply chain (and beyond) about the positive attributes and market potential of these fisheries. By using a range of communications tools, she promotes the benefits of these fisheries as well as the network of organisations working to develop and support them. Juliette joined IPNLF in late 2014 and works from the organisation's London office. She holds a BSc in Marine Biology from the University of Liverpool.
One-by-one fisheries are truly remarkable - you only need to see a video of a pole-and-line crew fishing skipjack of the back of a Maldivian dhoni, or an Indonesian fisher hauling in a yellowfin by hand from the side of his vessel, to understand how unique they are. By supplying a source of socially and environmentally responsible caught tuna, these fisheries are helping to meet the growing global demand whilst supporting the livelihoods of coastal communities. It’s a privilege to champion and share the stories of these artisanal, traditional fisheries, for the benefit of the people, seas and businesses connected to them.Juliette Tunstall (Communications Manager)
