Hector’s a Fish Out of Water

Thu, January 19, 2012

 

Hola Amigos! After a long and stormy trip across the Atlantic, I have finally arrived in beautiful Spain. The people here in Gijon are fantastically kind, and I am already making new land friends. In just a few days I will be meeting up with my cycling partners to begin our arduous land journey. I can’t believe that I have 1,600 kilometers to cycle until I get to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)’s headquarters in London, England!

Meanwhile I have been taking cycling lessons… which, as you can imagine, is more than a little awkward for those of the shark persuasion. But whenever my fins slip off the pedals and I feel like giving up, I remember how far we’ve already come in our mission to help reform wasteful fisheries and make the Atlantic ocean a safer place for sharks, turtles and other sea life.

The MSC needs to be reminded that the friends of sharks, turtles and sustainable fisheries everywhere are not only paying close attention, but are also willing to go out of their way to ensure that destructive fisheries aren’t greenwashed with a shoddy ecolabel. I may be a fish on a bicycle, but as my friends reassure me, even my fins have more legs than the proposed MSC certification for Canadian longline swordfish!

Of course, I could never accomplish this feat without my friends. I’m really excited to meet many of you along the way-  retailers, ENGOs, and supporters who want to bike alongside me or with extra rooms where I might stop for the night and rest my weary fins. Please get in touch if you can help! For my friends in the rest of the world, I’m counting on you to help spread the word about my mission and stay in touch on Facebook as I make my way over the next few weeks!

Dear Carl,I wish to contact you about your photo on top of this iwsbete and your work on Misali Island.I am writing a PhD proposal for anthropological research on the Misali Conservation project. I would like to use your photo on the frontpage of my proposal and hope you will give me permission to do so.The proposal is about the manner in which religion and ecology are integrated in this project and how this has worked out for the locals in Pemba.I will send my proposal to the sociology department of the Free University of Amsterdam. I will of course credit you in the reference section.If I receive a grant for my proposal I would like to talk to you about the Misali project. Maybe you can give me some practical advice on who to talk to and where to start.Thanks in advance!With kind regards,Francisca Jol.
