Sustainable Seafood Program Director
Gabe Andrews’ passion centers on the dynamic space where aquatic and terrestrial worlds mingle; and it’s taken him to the shorelines of the Chesapeake Bay, barrier islands of Georgia, and the Pacific beaches of Costa Rica. Much of his work has focused on sea turtle and diamondback terrapin conservation, but he also has experience in environmental education and endangered species protection. He graduated with a B.S. in Biology at Ohio University and earned his M.S. degree from the University of Vermont’s Field Naturalist and Ecological Planning program.
After working with the Safina Center previously as a Seafood Analyst, Gabe is excited to move into this role to manage the Center’s Sustainable Seafood Program and continue its partnership with Whole Foods Market and Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. Along the way, Gabe says he looks forward to engaging with ocean-related policy, collaborating with other NGOs and expanding the reach of the Safina Center’s Sustainable Seafood Program initiatives.
Outside of work, you might find Gabe paddling, trail-running with his dogs, or delivering a perfectly timed pun. Gabe is an amateur beekeeper, and recently adopted an obsession for collecting seeds and tinkering in the garden.
