We have extended the application period for the new Texas Sustainable Fisheries Manager position to the end of the month by February 28th.


The Sustainable Fisheries Manager position in Texas has been published  and it will be open through February 28. Note that the location is flexible within Texas.


This is a new position and unique opportunity to shape coastal and marine conservation in Texas and the Gulf of Mexico:


The Nature Conservancy’s Texas Chapter is hiring a new position - Sustainable Fisheries Manager – to develop and lead our coastal program state-wide and in the Gulf of Mexico region. The Sustainable Fisheries Manager provides technical leadership and program support to the Marine Science and Fisheries Program in the Freshwater and Marine Department of the Texas Chapter. Reporting to the Program Director, the Fisheries Manager provides leadership and support of conservation strategies to improve sustainability of Gulf of Mexico’s fisheries, and their relationship to other Texas regional conservation, management, and policy measures. The Manager helps establish the Conservancy as a major conservation partner within the area of responsibility, lead and participate in matrixed teams, and work within and across chapter departments and across Conservancy fisheries-related programs to build strategic, scientific, and technical capacity. To achieve that, the Manager develops and implements creative solutions to reduce the lack of timely and accurate fishery management information, and the chronic lack of collaboration between fishing communities and management agencies. The Manager makes available the best science-based management frameworks, information, and collaborative tools to resource managers and fishing communities to promote co-responsibility in fisheries management. To do that, develops key partnerships with public and private organizations and academic institutions to resolve technical issues in addressing each of these barriers for sustainability. The Manager also engages local community support for fisheries-related conservation efforts.
