Welfare Manager, India

 14th Apr 2023

Fish Welfare Standard Lead/Manager

Fish Welfare Initiative
Andhra Pradesh, India (but hybrid most of the time)

A core part of FWI’s theory of change is working collaboratively with aquaculture farmers to make improvements that meaningfully improve the lives of fishes. To this end, we are seeking a Fish Welfare Standard Lead/Manager to supervise our ground team in developing, trialing, and implementing farm welfare improvements for Indian major carp.

This role is suited for someone with experience conducting scientific research, ideally field research in aquaculture, animal welfare, marine biology, or global development. Work here will be challenging, interdisciplinary, and largely unprecedented—and we think, for the right candidate, the opportunity to not only develop welfare standards in understudied species farmed in large numbers, but to also see them directly implemented at scale, will be extremely rewarding.

The successful candidate will be designated either Lead or Manager, based on their prior experience and current ability to lead a whole department. For differences in responsibilities between the two designations, see How You Will Improve Fish Welfare.
