John N. (“Jack”) Kittinger, Ph.D.

Senior Director, Blue Production Program, Center for Oceans

As the senior director of the Blue Production Program in Conservation International's Center for Oceans, Dr. Kittinger works to ensure a healthy ocean provides benefits to coastal communities.

Dr. John N. (“Jack”) Kittinger is the senior director of the Global Fisheries and Aquaculture Program in Conservation International’s Center for Oceans, and a Professor of Practice in Arizona State University’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. Under his leadership, Conservation International works to protect biodiversity and improve the well-being of ocean-dependent communities by implementing sustainable fisheries and aquaculture solutions. These solutions are built on partnerships and investments from ocean to plate.

A social scientist and marine ecologist by training, Dr. Kittinger takes a comprehensive interest in finding sustainable solutions to complex problems facing the ocean environment and the people who depend on it. A lifelong surfer, fisher and waterman with family ties to the coastal Carolinas in the United States, he is committed to ocean-based learning experiences and to being in the water as often as possible. He and his family live in Niu Valley, Oahu, Hawai‘i.
