Corey Peet

Corey has worked on sustainable seafood issues for nearly 20 years. He is a passionate advocate for creative change and works with the Postelsia team to build sustainability solutions that are fully inclusive, equitable, and work to solve problems for the whole supply chain. His recent work has focused on Southeast Asia where he has supported the development of the Asian Seafood Improvement Collaborative, a group of seafood industry stakeholders working to build their own fisheries and shrimp aquaculture improvement programs. In addition, Postelsia is working to develop an innovative restaurant sustainability program that builds upon its work with the James Beard Foundation’s Smart Catch program, for which Corey was the Sustainability Director. 

Corey has experience working on seafood sustainability assessments, standards definition and implementation, leading and developing multi-stakeholder initiatives as well as working to help buyers understand sustainability issues and provide guidance to meet their sustainability commitments. He has worked with many groups including the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the U.S. Agency for International Development, James Beard Foundation, the David Suzuki Foundation, and Google. He has an M.Sc. in Marine Conservation Ecology from the University of Victoria. Corey is the Co-Founder of Postelsia.

“I love being a Raincoast Board member because Raincoast has found a unique way to balance advocacy with credible science, and powerful storytelling, to help people understand why change is required if we hope to preserve what is beautiful and important in BC’s coastal ecosystems, not to mention they inspired and helped me when I was a young scientist.”
