Abundant Seas Foundation identifies challenges and then their required engineered solutions. The Foundation acquires the rights to such engineered solutions and then works with strategic partners to launch the solutions.
AREAS OF INTEREST
Abundant Seas Foundation has identified three areas of interest for its engineering acquisitions:
1. Interception of Chemical Pollution in Coastal and Inland Water Systems.
2. Removal of Plastic (photo-degraded) Microdebris and Toxins from Ocean Gyres.
3. Reuse of Landfill Waste.

James Murosako, Managing Director
Jim has more than 20 years experience in designing mechanical solutions to seemingly impossible challenges. Jim's collaborations have been with Raytheon, Lawrence Livermore Labs, NovaTech, among others, including Lund Engineering which granted him the materials and facilities for the fabrication of the Pelagic Pod prototype. Jim's success has been his marriage of a "healing" philosophy to his engineering skillset. In this light, Jim approaches his engineered solutions from a molecule-to-molecule (origin to degradation) perspective. It is the launch of Jim's designs that have inspired the formation of Abundant Seas Foundation.
Chris Fure, Development Director
Chris has more than 15 years of experience developing and managing businesses from concept through exit. Chris left his tenure in venture capital (TransGlobal Ventures) to focus on launching economic solutions to environmental problems. Chris developed the marketing model of Abundant Seas Foundation for the public donation of marine technology. Chris envisions an organization where the Abundant Seas team can be relied on for not only providing creative, sustainable engineering solutions for global problems, but can also be called upon by private and public concerns to solve regional problems.
Kevin Odle, Research Scientist
Kevin is currently a graduate student of Environmental Studies at Evergreen College, focusing on holistic civil systems including sustainable energy, organic agroforestry, arcology, and economic geography. With his two interdisciplinary degrees from the University of Washington, Earth and Space Sciences, Oceanography, as well as an intensely cross-cultural multinational diplomatic upbringing in Latin America, Africa, and Europe, Kevin has the ability to not just understand a challenge through thorough research, but also envision its solution and articulate it successfully in a collaborative environment.
