After earning her master's degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Kate Troll began a career in Alaskan resource management in 1977. She was the first person to introduce coastal zone management to 'Bush Alaska.' For seven years she represented commercial fishing in the tumultuous world of 'fish politics.'
Over the course of her career, she served on the first State Board of Forestry, taught at the University of Alaska Southeast, served as a local elected official, and held several resource policy positions with the State of Alaska. She is currently the Fishery Manager for North and South America for the Marine Stewardship Council, a nonprofit organization dedicated to sustainable fishing certification.
As the author of the recently published book Eco-Nomics and Eagles (Xlibris), Troll explains how environmental protection and economic health can be made mutually reinforcing.
She speaks on the nine key principles needed to bring together economic and environmental goals and on the lessons learned from her more than two decades of experience managing forestry and fishery resources in Alaska and the North Pacific.
