Restoring The Ocean Food Web

Attorney Andrea Treece focuses on west coast issues as part of Earthjustice’s core oceans litigation team. Treece first started at Earthjustice as an intern for the Ocean Law Project. She now works on protecting forage fish species like herring, anchovies and sardines, which serve as the building blocks of the ocean food web and are being vacuumed out of the ocean at unsustainable levels.

Earthjustice is pushing for more ecosystem-based management in fisheries, which takes into account the health of key prey species that other marine animals depend on for survival.
