Jorge Ramírez

Fisheries Project Coordinator

Jorge was born in Mexico and since 2010 has lived in Galapagos, Ecuador. He is a Marine Biologist with a Masters in Marine and Coastal Sciences & Sustainable Management. He has always studied industrial and small-scale fisheries in Mexico and Ecuador for a variety of species: sharks, manta rays, sea cucumbers, lobsters and fish. His research has a systemic and participatory approach.

His vast experience in fisheries is the reason why, since October 2019, Jorge leads the Socioecology, assessment and management of fisheries project of the Charles Darwin Foundation, transforming it into an interdisciplinary one with a transdisciplinary view. Jorge has more than 30 publications including scientific articles, books, book chapters and technical reports.


The mission of the Charles Darwin Foundation and its Research Station is to tackle the greatest threats and challenges to Galapagos through scientific research and conservation action, in order to safeguard one of the world’s most important natural treasures.
