You could play a crucial role in establishing coastal fisheries monitoring in Kiribati.

This is a great opportunity to work alongside MFMRD to support fisheries management, develop economic growth and provide sustainable livelihoods for the benefit of the people of Kiribati.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

  • Bachelor degree in fisheries management or a related field
  • Demonstrated experience of practically implementing fisheries enforcement programs
  • Experience in fisheries compliance (MSC&E)
  • Experience delivering on-the-job training programmes
