Secure Fisheries Summary
Secure Fisheries advances sustainable fisheries through science-based analysis in Somalia and the Lake Victoria region and coordinates with regional stakeholders to fight IUU fishing in the Indian Ocean. Our program has a comprehensive approach to improving fisheries governance and combatting IUU fishing. Working at the state, regional, and global levels with three complementary focus areas, Secure Fisheries: promotes sustainable management of Somali fisheries, improves food and economic security in the Lake Victoria Basin, and combats IUU fishing in the Indian Ocean. In support of these focus areas, Secure Fisheries provides science-based reporting on fisheries resources. See further information at: www.securefisheries.org.
Secure Fisheries seeks to provide an open and inclusive atmosphere where interns work as a part of our team: interns attend team meetings as well as OEF staff meetings, work on a range of projects related to Indian Ocean and Somali fisheries, and have the freedom to suggest additional projects they believe are relevant based on their interests and understanding of the issues. Our goal is to give our interns the chance to apply their knowledge to real issues that we face daily.
Primary responsibilities may include:
Contributing to our work on Somali fisheries and Indian Ocean fisheries.
Conducting original research on the role of international corporations and distant water fishing fleets in the Indian Ocean.
Conducting original research on fisheries crime, specifically with respect to transnational crime in the Indian Ocean.
Conducting research on the impact of food security on conflict.
Contributing original writing to the team’s website, blog, and social media online presence.
