Current IPHC Responsibilities:
The Fisheries Data Specialist (HQ) positions are responsible for a range of data entry, verification, and reporting roles covering commercial, recreational, subsistence, and bycatch data, and reports directly to the Fisheries Data Coordinator.
As part of Fisheries Data Services team:
- Data tracking, collating, and reporting on commercial, recreational and subsistence fisheries as well as bycatch of Pacific halibut for the IPHC.
- Additionally, half of this position’s time includes data entry, including entering a variety of data accurately into the IPHC databases.
- Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission June 2018 to July 2022. Fisheries Biologist 1. Lead the annotation work for the Electronic Monitoring Innovation (EMI) team at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center. Developed and implemented protocols for annotation for machine learning algorithms for different fisheries. Managed image and empirical data for the EMI team as well as QA/QC the data. Provided the University of Washington students the data they needed to create multiple algorithms. Processed Alaskan seabird specimens and data using a multispectral chute for species identification.
