Birgitte Krogh-Poulsen of Viborg, Denmark, has recently been appointed as a member of the

Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) Standards Oversight Committee. Over her career, Krogh-Poulsen has focused on “child protection, elimination of child labor, forced labor and human trafficking, and promotion of education and gender equality.”

The committee will provide guidance with the GAA’s Best Aquaculture Practice program. “I am very fortunate to be given this opportunity to work with GAA to further promote sustainable practices in aquaculture,” said Krogh-Poulsen of her appointment. “To me, sustainable practices include environmental as well as social sustainability. Decent labor conditions and upholding of rights are very much part of this agenda. I hope that my experiences from close to 20 years of promoting decent work and human rights will benefit GAA in its daily practice, and I look forward to an exciting new experience.”
