Jamie Gibbon leads Pew’s work to rebuild the severely depleted Pacific bluefin tuna population and efforts to improve how fishing activities are monitored and observed, including the use of new electronic technology. He also coordinates with other Pew campaigns to reform the management of transshipment and improve oversight of this important link in the fishery supply chain. Gibbon joined Pew as a leadership fellow and worked on preventing overfishing and rebuilding fish stocks in the waters of the United States.
Before joining Pew, he carried out field research in Hawaii, studying the population dynamics and behaviors of the local humpback whale population.
Gibbon holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from Wake Forest University and a master’s in environmental science and management from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
