Have you ever picked up a can of fish in the supermarket and wondered what the MSC certified symbol actually means for the tuna in the can?

Most of us know it means the fish is from sustainable stocks. But how is this judged and verified and how did the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) manage to use consumer choice to certify 17% of all fisheries globally as sustainable in just 20 years?

Today we're speaking to Dr Yemi Oloruntuyi who is the Head of the Global Accessibility Program at the MSC. Yemi tells us about the MSC and the issues it seeks to tackle and its successes to date. And then she shares her career stories from her beginnings in Lagos, Nigeria, to where she is now a key part of an organisation seeking to save three in ten of all fisheries within the next 10 years.

Yemi also shares her thoughts on the need for more diversity and inclusion in conservation, along with her careers advice for people like you. And finally, she ends by telling us about the opening of the Ocean Stewardship Fund Grants for students and researchers totalling nearly 300,000 pounds. Stay tuned and enjoy!
