This position is based at our headquarters in Anchorage, Alaska. The primary responsibility of the EM data reviewer will be the accurate and timely processing and review of data from different commercial fisheries. These currently include data from Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico and the Southern Ocean. This data includes video and sensor data collected by on-board electronic monitoring (EM) systems from vessel fishing trips.
The World Wide Fund for Nature invites applications for the position of Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies Executive Director (ED).
The Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies (SAFET) Conference was launched by WWF in 2014 with a vision to explore and discover the potential of emerging, and potentially disruptive, technologies to improve the conservation and management of our world's fisheries and the traceability of the seafood supply chain. WWF partnered with Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) in 2020 to further these goals and objectives. From drones to cameras and satellites to artificial intelligence, the SAFET platform is designed to explore and create a dialogue around cutting-edge technologies such as these (and many more) while better connecting technology developers with those individuals and organizations that stand to benefit most from them.
The ED will be a highly motivated self-starter who will help to build out and execute a strong vision for how SAFET can meet its full potential as a convening and connecting force in the seafood and fisheries technology space. S/he will be responsible for all aspects of the SAFET platform, including but not limited to organizing online, hybrid and in-person events, coordination of periodic meetings with SAFET partners, fundraising and financial planning, website development, and outreach activities.
This position will be involved in the review, interpretation and data entry of information captured by video cameras installed on commercial fishing vessels including trip and haul start and end times, and catch species identification, quantification, and fate on vessels fishing midwater trawl, bottom trawl, and pot gear in California, Oregon, and Washington. The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of at-sea commercial fishery practices, experience as an at-sea fisheries observer on the West Coast, skill at visually identifying fish by species, attention to detail, and good organizational skills. The position is computer intensive and involves long periods of sitting and reviewing fishing videos.
