Eduardo joined Control Union (UK) in January 2024 as a Fisheries Assessment Manager. Prior to joining CU, he worked with Bureau Veritas as a Fisheries Assessor and also undertook freelance fisheries evaluation projects within the MSC fisheries standard framework. During this period, Eduardo has been involved in various fisheries, primarily as an expert in Principle 1 and Principle 3, but he has also worked as a Principle 2 expert.
Before entering the fisheries certification field, Eduardo worked at FAO (GFCM), focusing on fishery management and assessment, mainly in the Mediterranean Sea. He also contributed to research at the Universities of Vigo and Santiago de Compostela, exploring various areas related to the fishing sector. His notable research includes integrating macroeconomic mechanisms in fisheries assessment and management, addressing Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, estimating the volume of illicitly caught fish in Galician shell-fisheries, developing Input-Output Tables for the Galician fishing and canning industries, and evaluating the cost-effectiveness of implementing genetic mechanisms in stock assessment and parameter estimation for fisheries assessment.
Eduardo is in the final stages of his PhD at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Economics and Business), holds an MSC in Sustainable Fisheries Management from the University of Alicante since 2016, and a BSC from the same university since 2014. He has also completed various MSC online modules.
