Guillermo Martin joins FOL to work on FAO-IHH project

01/07/2019 -

Guillermo Martin joined FOL as a project researcher last June to work on the FAO project “Illuminating Hidden Harvests” (IHH-Spain). His significant experience in fisheries science with a large dataset management and statistical and programming skills, applied to a wide range of fisheries and ecological research topics will contribute very positively to reach the objectives of IHH.

Guillermo will assist the Principal Investigator, Elena Ojea to conduct the case study in Spain to collate, collect and analyse the best available data and information on small-scale fisheries (SSF) to highlight its role at economic, ecological, social and governance levels for achieving a sustainable development.

After finishing his bachelor’s degree in Sea Sciences at the University of Alicante, he pursued an MSc in “Applied Marine and Fisheries Ecology” at the University of Aberdeen under the sponsor of “La Caixa Postgraduate Grant”.  During his academic and professional career, he has worked in several fisheries-related topics, including, effects of river discharge in local inshore fisheries at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, development of highly resolved spatiotemporal species distribution models during his master thesis, design of pelagic self-sampling programs in collaboration with the Scottish Pelagic industry and data-limited stocks methodologies at the Chilean Fisheries Development Institute.

His field experience and his great skills will greatly contribute to FOL mission and the best possible outcome for IHH-Spain

We are delighted to have Guille as new member of FOL. Welcome Guille!
