Ocean Elder

For Edson Limes, learning about the ocean as a child was simply a part of life; he grew up among fishermen and eventually worked for Coastal Resource Management and the Department of Environmental Quality collecting ocean data. In his opinion, “you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to protect the ocean; it’s in our genes.” He believes it’s important for him to pass down his ocean knowledge because he knows that if he doesn’t share it, it will be lost.
