ocean areas. She will also investigate case studies of diverse exploited communities that have been fished using either method.

Meanwhile, Dr. Rochet, who earned her Ph.D. in Biometrics from the Universit Claude Bernard in 1991, will develop and use state-of-the-art community modeling tools to predict the effects of both fishing techniques on the composition of marine communities. Dr. Rochet intends to use her findings both to raise awareness among fishermen and the public about the impacts of fishing on biodiversity, and to help shape fishery management policy. Based on her research, she will advise international fisheries officials whether to support development of selective fishing gears and methods, or to concentrate on identifying improved uses for bycatch that is now treated as trash.

It is critical that fishery management plans take into account the many stakeholders in a marine ecosystem and make every effort to avoid far-reaching negative impacts, said Dr. Pikitch, a conservation biologist and a 2000 Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation herself.

The ocean cant speak for itself, and the Fellows are people who give it voice.

Since the early 1990s, the Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation has been awarded to more than 100 leading marine scientists, economists, attorneys, and other ocean conservationists from 29 countries. The fellowship program supports innovative projects led by mid-career, emerging leaders in ocean conservation and designed to develop and implement solutions to critical challenges in the marine realm. The four other 2008 Fellows will pursue projects that aim to: safeguard Antarctic krill fisheries that serve as critical food sources for whales; protect Chinas threatened marine environment by creating an unprecedented network of Marine Protected Areas; document the government subsidies leading to unsustainable ocean fishing globally; and, create thermal enhancement techniques that can help some reef cora
