- Protecting Chinas threatened marine environments: Mr. Fan Meng is General Manager of the Guangdong Provincial Oceanic and Fishery Administration in Chinas Guangdong Province, where significant coastal damage has accompanied economic development in recent years and political and public support for serious marine conservation has been slow to develop. The first Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation from China, Mr. Meng will improve the effectiveness of the regions Marine Protected Area (MPA) network by organizing professional training for staff of 35 existing MPAs, and by designing and implementing an additional 15 to 20 MPAs to expand the network. Mr. Meng will also establish an information center and launch publicity campaigns on marine conservation issues. Guangdong Province borders the South China Sea and is home to 80 million people. It has 2,100 miles of winding coastline, the longest stretch in the country.

- Documenting the economics of unsustainable fishing globally: Dr. Ussif Rashid Sumaila is an Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia Fisheries Center in Vancouver, Canada, and was born and raised in Nigeria. Dr. Sumaila will create comprehensive databases detailing the global cost and ecological impacts 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. His work will provide concrete arguments for smarter policymaking concerning fisheries management worldwide. 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.
