Scientific researcher eDNA pelagic fish

The Belgian fishing industry faces an uncertain future when the transition period linked to the Brexit agreement is over. In the event of a possible closure of British waters, the small fleet segment will be particularly affected because these fishermen have limited options to other fishing grounds.

Do you want to contribute to sustainable fisheries? Are you passionate about molecular analyses and fascinated by their many applications to better understand marine fish communities and species? Then you are probably the right candidate for this challenging job!
