40 · ADAM BASKE & JULIE THOMAS · ONE HOOK, ONE LINE, ONE FISH AT A TIME
Adam Baske is the Director of Policy & Outreach at the International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) and has over 15 years of ocean-related experience, with specialties in global tuna fisheries, international environmental policy bodies, and marine education. Adam has worked in diverse fields across the spectrum of marine conservation and management, including as a fisheries observer in Alaska, as an educator on-board a state-of-the-art sailing school vessel, and as a manager for an international campaign aimed at reforming the world’s largest tuna fisheries.
Julie Thomas is the Project Manager on the beautiful island St Helena. As Project Manager, Julie uses her knowledge and experience to support the St Helena's tuna fishing industry to develop and expand, whilst ensuring that the island’s maritime zone is sustainably managed for future generations. She has been involved in the existing commercial fishing industry on St Helena Island for over 10 years. Her exposure to the fishery includes practical and theoretical knowledge as she is an executive committee member of the St Helena Commercial Fisherman’s Association (SHCFA) and also represents the fishermen and the industry as a member of the St Helena Fisheries Corporation (SHFC) Board.
The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) works to develop, support and promote socially and environmentally responsible pole-and-line and handline tuna fisheries around the world. IPNLF’s ambition is to contribute to thriving coastal fisheries, including the people, communities, businesses and seas connected with them.
This was a multi-country recording with Adam and Julie dialing in from the US and St Helena respectively. While the recording is by no means perfect, we were pretty impressed that technology held out, especially from St Helena which is in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! We enjoyed learning about one-by-one fisheries and covered the destructive fishing methods that are decimating our ocean life, why the pole and line approach is a sustainable alternative, why it’s not so black and white when considering different and opposing approaches to saving the world like veganism and sustainable fishing, the latest in food trace-ability and if you are a tuna eater, how you can do so in a way that supports both coastal communities and marine environments around the world.
