Every week, TriplePundit will take 30 minutes or so to chat with an interesting leader in the sustainable business movement. These chats are broadcast on our Google+ channel and embedded via YouTube right here on 3p.
On Thursday, May 29th at 10am PT / 1pm ET, join TriplePundit’s Founder, Nick Aster, for a chat with Scott Nichols, Director of Verlasso. Verlasso is the first and only ocean-raised farmed Atlantic salmon to receive the “Good Alternative” buy ranking from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. Verlasso offers a premium salmon raised in harmony with the natural environment, and is leading the way to a new environmental stewardship.
Scott is responsible for Verlasso’s NGO engagement and the ways we evolve aquaculture to meet the ever-growing demand for fish while preserving the ecosystems where fish are raised. Previously, Scott worked extensively on biodiversity projects in Africa and South America, giving him a deep appreciation for developing comprehensive approaches to sustainable food production. Scott’s education includes a Ph.D. in biochemistry from UCLA and Wharton’s Advanced Management Program. “I have a complete and total belief that we must act with urgency to find the most sustainable ways to produce good and healthy food. Big and little steps are both important.”
