Gulf Restoration Network (GRN) is a non-profit organization made up of an alliance of groups and individuals committed to uniting and empowering people to restore the resources of the Gulf region.

As part of our Gulf Fish Forever campaign, GRN has worked for decades to improve the quality of the Gulf of Mexico, its fish, and the means through which fish are caught. Often times, diverse interests have different ideas about how our fisheries should be managed. GRN is committed to working with our partners to achieve victories for the fish, economy, and coastal culture that bring everyone to the table.

GRN is seeking a dedicated and passionate individual to join our team as Fisheries Associate. The Fisheries Associate will be focused on building relationships with Chefs, restaurateurs and other stakeholders who care about protecting Gulf fisheries in order to push for science based federal fisheries policy and common sense habitat protections.

We prohibit discrimination and harassment and provide equal employment opportunity without regard to, and not limited to, ethnicity, religion, race, national origin, abilities, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or genetic information.
