Tom Kraft head shotTom Kraft of Norpac Fisheries Expo founded the Hawaii Swordfish Fishery in 1988, and has since worked tirelessly to improve practices in the swordfish and tuna fisheries worldwide. He has worked alongside NGOs in Asia to promote the adoption of gear modifications to advance ecologically responsible fishing and avoid non-targeted species.


“Attaining sustainability and ocean health requires partnerships with fishermen and NGOs, as well as industry commitments to responsible business practices. My goal is to continue building those networks so sustainability is eventually the status quo.”
