Lorsque que Kayla a étudié les effets de l’acidification des océans sur les pêches canadiennes, elle a rapidement vu à quel point il est important de mener des recherches pertinentes pour les communautés de pêcheurs qui sont directement touchées par les changements de l’état des océans.

Depuis cette expérience, elle voulait en faire plus.

Elle a décidé d’entrer dans le monde de la protection des océans, un domaine où elle a vu le potentiel de transformer ses connaissances en action. Dans son rôle avec Ocean Wise Seafood, elle a l’occasion de promouvoir et de guider les entreprises qui produisent ou qui offrent des produits Ocean Wise afin de faire avancer le mouvement écoresponsable des produits de la mer au Québec.


During her eight years in the Canadian Maritimes where Kayla completed her studies in Marine Biology, she worked alongside international experts from the government, the fisheries and seafood industry, and academia to develop synergistic partnerships based on common goals and complementary expertise.

Here, she recognized the gap between the scientific world and fishing/farming communities that rely on deep collaborations to conduct relevant and impactful research. Ever since, she has been working to bridge that gap through solutions- and action-focused initiatives.

Kayla’s core work is to transform fisheries and aquaculture science into positive action across the seafood supply chain. She currently collaborates with businesses world-wide to help them support sustainable seafood systems and better communicate seafood + ocean solutions to their clients and end-consumers. Through evidence-based recommendations and educational projects, she connects like-minded businesses, guiding them and consumers to act now for the ocean.
