Presently the owner of the offshore albacore troller "One And All," Jeremy Brown has worked the waters of the Pacific Ocean from Alaska to the "Roaring Forties" of the Southern Ocean. Starting out as deckhands in Alaska, Jeremy and his wife, Jill, followed the salmon migration along the Pacific Coast, catching the fish one at a time with hook and line. When his wife stayed ashore in 1994 to qualify as an acupuncturist, Jeremy headed offshore seeking albacore tuna. After seven years and half a million miles of ocean, he now fishes his yearly halibut and blackcod quota in Alaska each spring and works on fishery policy issues.
As a founding member and current board member of the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (a community-based group that works to restore salmon runs in Whatcom County) Jeremy focuses his work on the connections between fish, water quality, community and how food is valued. He currently works in Washington State for Slow Food Four Corners. He was a member of the 2002-2004 class of Food and Society Policy Fellows.
