Research Intern

Ben, having just completed his second year in International Relations at the University of Sussex, is currently undertaking an eight week long research internship with IPNLF. He is predominantly working with Zacari Edwards, our socio-economic manager, to help create the Sourcing Transparency Platform (STP) though is assisting across IPNLF activities.

Having been a SCUBA diver since he was twelve, Ben has cared for issues of ocean conservation and sustainability for much of his life and became specifically focused on these values manifesting themselves in aquaculture and fisheries through his involvement with an aquaponics research lab as a volunteer for over a year. Ben is incredibly excited to channel this passion into the mission of the IPNLF and play a small part in increasing the transparency and sustainability of the tuna industry for both people and planet.
