Outside of work, Charles Clement gives back to the community by supporting charitable organizations such as Halibut Coalition.
Committed to preserving the sustainability of halibut as a natural resource, Halibut Coalition acknowledges the vital role seafood plays in the Alaskan economy. To protect fish populations, Alaskan fisheries utilize science-driven fishery management strategies such as protecting habitats, controlling bycatch, and setting catch limits. As a result, Alaskan fisheries are among the country’s best managed; in the past, National Geographic has cited the state as one of the three most sustainable fisheries in the world.
