Jorge Ramírez

Fisheries Project Coordinator

Jorge was born in Mexico and since 2010 has lived in Galapagos. He is a Marine Biologist with a Master’s degree in Marine and Coastal Science & Sustainable Management. He has always studied industrial and small-scale fisheries in Mexico and Ecuador of a variety of species: sharks, rays, sea cucumber, lobsters and finfishes. His research includes any component of the fisheries: biology, ecology, participatory research, markets and public policy.

His extensive experience on fisheries is the reason why, since October 2019, Jorge has lead the "Socio-ecology, Assessment and Management of Fisheries" Project at CDF. He is expanding the focus of the Project towards an interdisciplinary one, with the aim of understanding the complex socio-ecological fishery system of Galapagos and improving its management.
