Brian Yurasits of the TerraMar Project
A Show about the advocacy to protect the high seas
On this episode of the Sea Change podcast, Jenna Valente sits down with Brian Yurasits, Development Director for The TerraMar Project. Brian has conducted research about marine protected areas and worked with the Global FinPrint Project helping survey sharks and rays that live around the world's tropical reefs. He was a fisheries observer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which many of us lovingly referred to as NOAA, during that time he was onboard commercial fishing vessels where he collected data on fisheries operations in the Northeast United States. Brian now leads TerraMar, an organization dedicated to educate and inspire a global community to promote awareness, transparency and responsibility for the Ocean.
