Alan Jones "is the Managing Director and co-owner of STURGEON, S.C.E.A., a caviar company based in southwestern France that he established in 1995. Prior to the inception of Sturgeon S.C.E.A., he was General Manager of Stolt Sea Farm, S.A. At Stolt, Jones oversaw the company's turbot farming in France, Spain and Portugal and its sea bass and sea bream farming in Greece. From 1982 to 1986, he served as a board member of the World Aquaculture Society and was a founding member and President of the European Aquaculture Society from 1984 to 1986. Jones has more than 30 years of experience in the aquaculture industry, including being the pioneer of turbot farming, and he is the author of more than 40 scientific papers and publications on aquaculture. As a sustainable caviar farmer, Jones was an active partner of SeaWeb for years prior to his joining its Board of Directors. He served as an effective spokesperson from the aquaculture industry for the Caviar Emptor and L’Autre Caviar media campaigns. Both efforts were aimed at raising awareness of the threats to the endangered Caspian Sea sturgeon and were successful in achieving stronger trade controls on wild Caspian caviar, culminating in a ban on global trade of all wild caviar."
