Ryan Cleary steps down from SEA-NL

On Thursday Ryan Cleary stepped down as Executive Director of SEA-NL to focus his full attention on the formation of a new fisheries co-operative.

“I remain as passionate about SEA-NL as the day Merv Wiseman and I started the organization and will continue as a tireless advocate for the inshore fleet, but my focus is drawn to the formation of a new fisheries co-operative,” said Cleary, who was hired as SEA-NL’s first Executive Director in February 2022.

Cleary said he hopes SEA-NL will continue its valuable advocacy role, and work hand-in-hand with the new co-operative to achieve the common goal of prosperous fisheries and rural communities.

“The goals and objectives of SEA-NL and the future Co-op are the same, and I hope to work collaboratively to achieve them together,” said Cleary, who continues to work with Wiseman on development of the Co-op. “Full-steam ahead.”
