PhD in trawl selectivity improvement to reduce bycatch in commercial fisheries (Arctic University of Tromsø, Norway; MSc in Marine Biology: Biodiversity and Conservation (University of La Laguna, Tenerife) and graduated in Biology (University of the Basque Country). I work on the development of fishing gears and practices to increase selectivity, reduce bycatch and minimize additional impacts, such as the production of marine debris resulting from fishing activities. My aim is to play a role in enhancing the sustainability of fisheries while ensuring their viability. I work closely with the fishing industry, and I am committed to addressing its challenges while providing support for regulatory compliance. I have large experience participating in scientific surveys both in commercial and oceanographic vessels.
