solid academic background combined with more than 20 years of experience allow me to understand the complexity of the seafood supply chain, synergies across diverse fields, disciplines, and people
My knowledge comes from a solid academic background in aquaculture, fish quality, food science, sustainability and social accountability combined with more than 20 years of experience in the seafood sector as a shrimp farm manager, seafood quality manager in the fish long liner industry, quality assurance inspector, product integrity manager, auditor, trainer for different standards and as a lead assessor for sustainable schemes.
Having this background and the opportunity of working in more than 60 countries suppliers of seafood products globally; allow me to understand the complexity of the seafood supply chain, synergies across diverse fields, disciplines, and people.
In June 2014, I founded an independent seafood consultancy. Prior to this, I held a position at Pacifical c.v as Product Integrity Manager for almost five years. Additionally, I worked as the Coordinator of the MSC CoC implementation for the Parties of the Nauru Agreement (PNA) in the Western Central Pacific Ocean which is a leading example of the well-managed tuna fishery. I was responsible for several tasks as I led work on international tuna markets, PNA capacity building – training and provides technical expert advice concerning social and sustainable sourcing of tuna products, tuna quality and traceability. I have participated in expert steering groups and advisory teams of the Marine Stewardship Council of MSC CoC and labor issues in the United Kingdom, Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (Switzerland), AQUA-LIT (Spain), and Seafoodtaskforce (Thailand).
