Blake Lee-Harwood is leaving his role as chief programs officer at the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) after more than 10 years with the organization.

He is departing to set up a new international consultancy specializing in policy, communications and advocacy for sustainable seafood, with a focus on the environment and climate change.

During his tenure at SFP, Lee-Harwood served in a variety of senior management positions.

He created many of the tools and systems underlying sustainable seafood today, including the first global database of fishery improvement projects (FIP), and he is also credited with inventing the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP), a global platform for voluntary disclosure of seafood sourcing.
