EcoWB is calling for a talented individual with prior experience in marketing, supply chain research, business, or economics and an interest in assisting with the implementation of sustainable fisheries through economic incentives and supply chain restructuring. This individual will support the EcoWB Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) program by conducting research on seafood markets and outreach to processing plants, import and export companies, and seafood retail markets in support of small to medium scale artisanal fisheries around the world.

If interested, please send your CV and a brief statement explaining your abilities, interest in the program, availability, and any further questions you may have to trevor.eakes@ecowb.org. We will contact candidates directly to discuss the position and your career background.
