Ed Rhodes has been announced as the new executive director of the NFI Crab Council.

Mr Rhodes has chaired the Council while serving as vice president for sustainability and aquaculture development for Phillips Foods since 2009. As Council chairman, he guided the organisation’s sustainability mission, drawing on experience gained in over 40 years as a marine biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service and in the private sector. As part of company restructuring Mr Rhodes will no longer be an employee of Phillips but will focus on furthering the Crab Council’s work through his new capacity as executive director.

“I am excited to remain with the Crab Council in this new role,” said Mr Rhodes. “I have watched the Council grow from an idea into a thriving organisation now sponsoring sustainability work in five Asian countries.”

“From the start Ed has served as the Council’s scientific rudder,” said Crab Council secretary Gavin Gibbons. “His technical direction and insight have proven invaluable in steering the group towards an effective and adaptive sustainability approach. As executive director, his efforts will continue to be essential to coordinating and implementing work on the ground.”

The NFI Crab Council was founded in 2009 and funds blue swimming crab sustainability projects through contributions from participating companies.
