Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Ricardo Sagarminaga's work was prepared when Ricardo Sagarminaga was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Ricardo engages the diverse sectors working within marine eco-systems (from each segment of the fishing industry to government regulators, conservation organizations, the navy and others) to be active and collaborative players in the conversation of marine biodiversity while ensuring sustainable livelihoods for coastal and marine dependent communities. A core element of this strategy is to ensure that meticulous research and the careful application of scientific methods are embedded in the daily lives and responsibilities of front line fisherman, as well as in the hands of policymakers and marine sector constituencies.
