Pamela Ruiter

Senior Manager - Iberian Peninsula

Pam manages our work on coastal fisheries in Spain and Portugal implementing and designing sustainable fisheries management through the adoption of co-management backed by strong science and secure tenure.  Since 2013, she has led our partnership with WWF Spain where we are working on several sites across Spain involving fishermen and other stakeholders in co-management processes to create the rules around fisheries management that are regionally applicable and achieve long term sustainability. Pam also leads our new program in Portugal, where small scale fisheries are a primary component, to improve the management of these coastal fisheries.
