2008 Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation awarded to Dr. Ussif Rashid Sumaila
Date:2/5/2008

NEW YORK CITY - Dr. Ussif Rashid Sumaila, an Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre in Vancouver, Canada, is among five ocean experts to be awarded the prestigious 2008 Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation, which supports critical marine conservation projects around the world. Dr. Sumaila will use his fellowship to document the financial factors contributing to unsustainable commercial fishing and depletion of ocean resources around the world.

The Pew Institute for Ocean Science administers the three-year, $150,000 awards and today announced the 2008 Fellows, whose innovative projects are urgently needed to improve coral reef health, sustain fisheries, and enhance the effectiveness of marine protected areas. The winners are based in Canada, the United States, China, France and Australia and join more than 100 Pew Fellows in Marine Conservation from 29 countries around the globe (Learn more about the other recipients and their projects at www.pewoceanscience.org).

Dr. Sumailas prior work has shown that taxpayers worldwide are paying massive subsidies to support overfishing, and has drawn international attention from the media and policymakers. Through his fellowship project on Global Data on the Economics of Fishing," Dr. Sumaila will create comprehensive databases that detail the cost and ecological impact of commercial fishing around the world. This information will form the basis for sophisticated studies and models that he will develop to document the massive fiscal and environmental waste being caused by poor management of global ocean resources.

Dr. Sumailas Pew Fellowship project will provide concrete arguments for smarter policymaking concerning fisheries management worldwide, said Pew Institute for Ocean Science Executive Director Dr. Ellen Pikitch. Valuable marine ecosystems are being plundered because of overfishing, ineffective management, and fisheries subsidies, and Dr. Sumaila will
