Favorite Publication: Gumbs, K. (2012) An Examination of changes or trends in key health indicators on critical habitats around Anguilla, BWI "As a child my grandfather and grandmother were both fishers. They played a major role in raising me and introducing me to the sea, fish and fishing. As a young high school teen, I enrolled in the Job training program and signed up to be placed at the Department of Fisheries and Marine Resources, more than 20 years later I am still here. I have been the Director of Fisheries since 2014, leading a dynamic team in achieving coastal resilience, species protection and public education and sensitization. I do not have a favorite quote, but, I am a strong believer in education and stewardship being the most effective tools for environmental protection."
