Working in the field of Marine Science for over twenty-five years, Andrea Tomlinson is our dedicated General Manager who began her career in Marine Biology with finfish aquaculture. She spent her post-graduation years doing community development volunteer work in rural Jamaica, where she later became the Nursery Manager on one of the largest and most successful tilapia/freshwater shrimp farms on the island. With this experience, she was able to start her own seafood distribution business in Jamaica, delivering locally grown shrimp and fish to Jamaican-owned seafood restaurants and hotels.
Moving back to New Hampshire in 2002, she served as a Broodstock Manager and held a managerial role at Great Bay Aquaculture. In 2012 she moved on to the organic farming of chicken for the Farm to Table restaurant, Blue Moon Evolution, in Exeter. A true supporter of the local food movement, Andrea applies her experience in Marine Science, marketing, and working with Commercial Fishermen to connect our fishermen with seacoast consumers (CSF) and local restaurants (RSF).
Graduating from UNH after transferring from University of Miami, with a BS in Marine Science and joining us in March 2015, her previous employment in New Hampshire includes: UNH Jackson Estuarine Lab, UNH Coastal Marine Lab, and Great Bay Aquaculture.
