Kristin McLaren has been named Executive Director of the Gulf Seafood Institute (GSI) by the governing board of directors. McLaren’s passion and background in sustainable fisheries uniquely qualifies her to assume GSI’s Executive Director post as a voice for the Gulf.

“The Board has unanimously selected McLaren to lead the organization,” said Harlon Pearce, GSI President. “We have great confidence in Ms. McLaren, who we expect will develop rich and meaningful relationships with our members. Our organization will build upon and advance its successful history of advocacy, science and education for our fishing communities under her leadership.”

As former Interim Executive Director of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, she has significant experience in fisheries and Federal grant programs. Her career has recently centered on recovery efforts from the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on April 20, 2010 and has secured more than $1.9 million in Federal funding for the fisheries.
