As a fisheries research volunteer you will be collecting data that allows us to assess how sustainable the fisheries are.
From these assessments, eventually we would like to determine minimum landing size for individual species, as well as changing certain fishing legislation.
You will be conducting this research along the beautiful coastlines of Guinjata Bay and Paindane Bay.

As a volunteer on this research project you will be responsible for recording the data into the logs along with the corresponding images (checking shark and ray IDs with a field specialist if you are unsure), cleaning the collected shark/ray vertebrae, and ensuring equipment is clean and stored.

This Marine Biology project is included in these programs: Marine Conservation Volunteering & Diving Experience Marine Research Internship
