Currently, I am involved in a few research projects related to tuna longline fisheries for the Dirección Nacional de Recursos Acuáticos (DINARA). I am also enrolled in a master degree in Ecology in the Facultad de Ciencias. The topic of my master thesis is the determination of age and growth of spearfish (Tetrapturus pfluegueri). This work it’s been done in partnership with CUFER and the Oceanographic Institute of Venezuela, Universidad de Oriente.
