Joel Southall manages Corporate Partnerships that the Anderson Cabot Center has formed with companies that buy and sell seafood to advance the sustainability goals of these companies while at the same time advancing the mission of the New England Aquarium. Joel oversees the Fisheries and Aquaculture Solutions program’s work with our corporate partners on efforts to improve the environmental performance of the seafood they buy and sell, mitigate risks in their seafood supply chains, and educate their employees and customers. Primarily, he works to help translate the science of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Solutions research analysts into formats that are most easily acted upon by corporate partners. Before joining the New England Aquarium, Joel worked as the Director of Sustainability and Senior Scientist for SEA Inc. and before that as Director of Sustainability for Xanterra Parks & Resorts® at Death Valley National Park and Grand Canyon National Park.
He is the Aquarium’s point person to the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions.
