We rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities
Blue Ventures develops locally-led approaches to marine management that benefit people and nature alike. By listening and responding to basic needs, we design our models to catalyze and sustain marine conservation, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their resources. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.
Summary job description
We are seeking a Data Systems Manager to support our team and partners in the development of data collection, management and visualization systems to guide and improve evidence-based decision making in marine conservation and fisheries management.
Our field teams and the partners and coastal communities that we support gather a wide range of quantitative, qualitative, and spatial data. These data empower communities with information to guide decision making in locally-led marine conservation and fisheries management, while also enabling us to monitor our impact at local and global scales.
We manage datasets that include information on ecosystem health, fisheries catches, income from fishing and other livelihoods, measures of poverty, human health and wellbeing, and perceptions of marine conservation. Trained colleagues and community members collect these data using a range of methodologies including both community and expert-led approaches.
