Thematic and Territorial Officer.

Arthur joined the FARNET SUPPORT UNIT in October 2017 as a Thematic and Territorial Officer. He is providing expert advice and technical support to the FLAGs network and Member States administrations from the EU, mainly on Fisheries and Aquaculture thematics.

Between April 2015 and October 2017, he worked for the consulting company OCEANIC DEVELOPPEMENT (France) as Project Manager on several studies related to fishery (management, socio-economic and environmental subjects, stock assessment) and Seafood certification (Marine Stewardship Council – MSC, Friend of the Sea, Label Rouge). He acquired an audit team leader accreditation for the “MSC Sustainable fisheries” certification in September 2015 and was part of the certification team for South Brittany Sardine Fishery reassessment and for Cancale Bay Slipper Limpet fishery certification.

From 2013-2014, he worked as a Junior Project Manager at the French National Committee for Maritime Fisheries and Fish Farming (CNPMEM-Paris), where he analysed interactions between fishing gears and marine habitats. He has also been involved in several other projects related to fishery management and marine governance and took part to the EU Marine Expert Group on Protected Marine Areas, in Brussels in October 2014. This expertise allowed him to develop a wide range of professional skills including: monitoring socio-economic surveys with fishermen and governance stakeholders, statistical analysis (fishing impacts, stock assessment) and expertise in fisheries and aquaculture.

His experience has strengthened his knowledge of fishery issues (policies-management-fishing technologies-impacts) on an international, national and local level. He has a Master’s degree in Fisheries and Aquaculture sciences. In addition to French, he fluently speaks English and has a good knowledge of German.
