MSC Peer Review College invites new applications from fisheries experts
The MSC Peer Review College provides peer reviewers for MSC fishery assessments, independently of the Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) who manage each assessment.
The college is now inviting a second round of applications from experienced fisheries scientists and managers to act as occasional peer reviewers.
The college was approved by the MSC’s Board of Trustees in June 2017 to progress from its initial pilot stage. An overview of the College structure and other details are available on the MSC’s Program Improvements website.
Requirements and commitments
Candidates should have:
- A university degree in fisheries, marine conservation biology, natural resources or environmental management or other relevant field; and/or at least 5 years management or research experience in marine conservation biology, natural resources or environmental management, relevant to fisheries research or management; and
- Experience in at least one of the following competency areas: fish stock assessments, fish stock biology/ecology, fishing impacts on aquatic ecosystems, fishery management and operations (see the application form for further details).
Successful applicants will need to complete a series of online training modules. Assignments would be performed from the peer reviewer’s own location (not on site), normally for two days for each peer review, with more time allowed for fisheries with more than 2 target species or gear types. Up to 5 peer reviews per year could be assigned per reviewer.
Peer reviewers must act impartially and are required to notify the college of any potential conflicts of interest relating to any reviews they are offered (such as current or recent involvement in a fishery management agency to the extent that they could be reviewing the CAB’s interpretation of their own previous work).
