Expert Profile


IRC Shrimp

The IRC Shrimp project consists of a discard monitoring program and an international knowledge exchange platform. The discard monitoring is run with an observer on board Dutch shrimp fishing vessels. The MSC certification as well as the excemption to the landing obligation imply requirements with regard to improving the monitoring of bycatch in shrimp fisheries. The IRC Shrimp project meets the requirements of the MSC certification and allows the sampling from the discard program to be validated. The platform days are intended to share existing knowledge so that studies carried out in several countries can be used optimally, and useful innovations are made available to the fleet more quickly.


Lecturer: Marine Resources Management (AFI32806), Wageningen University (2020, 2021)

The course deals with the management of human impacts on living renewable resources in marine, coastal and large freshwater ecosystems. The focus is on impacts on marine and freshwater ecosystems through fishing for food and income. But there are also direct and indirect impacts on and feedbacks from ecosystems as tourism, sport fishing, wind energy parks, conservation measures such as Marine Protected Areas and pollution. Effective management of the use of marine ecosystems requires a social–ecological systems approach to analyse problems arising from the interactions between the ecosystem and the decisions of resource users.
