This project involves artificial reefs deployment for sustainable lobster fishing in an artisanal fishery. The short term objective is to understand how the artificial structures aid in the settlement of lobster populations for the commercial artisanal fishery, and if positive, continue to undertake an educational programme to promote the sustainable fishing of lobsters at minimum size required to avoid depletion of this biological and commercial resource. The project will be starting in March 2012 and there are two placements available for international volunteers. Applicants must have swimming and diving skills, preferably licensed PADI or similar certificate, willing to withstand lots of outdoor activities, willing to participate in community (indigenous) meetings, and be in general good health. No Spanish required, English language a must.

The project provides free accommodation, meals, and local transportation.

Please visit the Volunteer Latin America website to find out how to request further information, including the application procedure.

This project is posted on the Latin Lounge rather than the main Volunteer Latin America website.
