The unsustainable harvest of the world’s oceans has led to the depletion, and in some cases collapse, of many of the world’s major fish stocks. While the outlook for these threatened marine ecosystems remains bleak in the face of unsustainable fishing practices, those involved in the seafood industry are realising that by changing the way they conduct business now, the long-term viability of their industry can be ensured. In South Africa, many of the inshore fisheries resources are severely over-exploited as a result of historical overfishing and the increasing demands being placed on these resources by growing coastal populations. The recovery of these resources is threatened by a number of challenges including limited management capacity, high levels of poverty and unemployment and a lack of market opportunities for coastal fishing communities to maximise the value of their catches. Given the precarious state of South Africa’s inshore marine resources and the importance of these resources in providing for coastal communities food security and on-going livelihoods, it is critical to address the challenges facing this sector. In order to address these challenges, WWF-SA is seeking to appoint a Small-scale Fisheries Officer. The successful candidate will join WWF’s Seafood Market Transformation programme and will be responsible for the development and implementation of small-scale Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP) focused on developing market incentives for small-scale fisheries in South Africa.
