    Russell has spent his life and career as a marine ecologist and mariner studying, exploring, and sailing the BC coast. Founding Outer Shores is the realization of his ambition to bring together his experience, education, and passions to create an organization that fosters education, awareness, and stewardship. During his PhD in the Department of Zoology at the University of British Columbia (UBC), and as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability (also at UBC), Russell focused his research in three general areas: (1) the effects of over-fishing and over-hunting top predators on coastal ecosystems and human communities; (2) relationships between changing ocean climate and marine fish population dynamics; and (3) the design and effectiveness of marine protected areas. As a mariner, Russell’s career has included everything from instructional sailing, yacht deliveries, commercial research vessels, Canadian Coast Guard fast-response craft and lifeboats, and expedition sailing vessels.
