He is also involved in several other projects including helping to address plastic pollution on our coasts and in our oceans.

He has worked on legislation related to climate change and ocean acidification, the management of tropical and deep-sea corals, Hawaiian Monk Seal conservation, marine protected areas, addressing illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, and appropriations for NOAA and other federal agencies.
