Jimmy Ortiz at his deskJimmy Martinez Ortiz is a strong advocate for fisheries management decisions based on sound and robust scientific advice in his native Ecuador. His work to implement an integrated monitoring system is an example of this vision. Jimmy believes we must shift from short-term fisheries management to management based on the best available science in order to improve the income of fishermen and maintain fishing jobs in a sustainable manner.


“We must keep working to support sustainable fisheries and protect the health of our oceans.”
