As Fisheries Research Officer for IPNLF, Nadheeh collects information on the Maldivian one-by-one tuna fishery, including data on tuna and baitfish catch, fuel use and bycatch - this information underpins much of IPNLF's building evidence work which is key to informing managment and best practise desicion making.
Marine research has always been an integral part of my career and it is a privilege for me to work within IPNLF to promote sustainability of this excellent fishery.Ibrahim Nadheeh (Fisheries Research Officer)
