Video Transcript

My name is Koyel Mandal I'm a fisheries economist with a non profit group called Ocean Conservancy. We are a national non profit organization and we work for Wild Healthy Oceans. We have offices, we are headquartered in Washington D.C. and we have offices from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico and on the east coast. The best thing about my job that I like I would say is traveling. I get to travel a lot to a lot of nice places which I haven't seen before so I would say that's, that's an exciting part of my job. And also the fact that it's pretty rewarding what I do. It's a slow process, it takes a lot of time to get a law through or supporting to get it through, the whole legislative process. It's a slow process but at the end of the day when you get that after three or four years it's really rewarding. You feel that you've done something, you've worked for that so long and you finally get it. So again this is a passion and this is what I wanted to do and want to make a change in fishers policies so that aspect of my job I like a lot. And things I don't like again it would, it has to be the fact that things are really slow. I mean if you work for the corporate sector things just happen every hour or every second but in our world it takes a lot of time and you have to be patient and just work through the process. So that's an aspect which at times gets frustrating when you keep on hitting the hammer and it doesn't go anywhere. So that frustrates I guess everyone at times but, again it's part of the process.
