Dr. Rohan Arthur, senior scientist at Nature Conservation Foundation, has been selected as a recipient of a 2013 Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation. The prestigious Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation is annually awarded to outstanding global leaders who are working to preserve and protect the world’s oceans and marine species.

In hisfellowship project, Dr. Arthur will gather data to better understand the contribution of healthy fish populations to the long-term resilience of coral reefs. He also will consult with fishermen to document past and present changes in fishing pressures on coral reef fish in the Lakshadweep Archipelago in India. His research will help promote ecologically sound management of fisheries and reefs.

Designed to promote innovative work, the Pew Marine Fellowship provides flexible support and encourages creative, interdisciplinary approaches to the preservation of marine systems.
