NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Region Observer Program (PIROP)

Lynker is the single awardee for this program, the largest of all US Federal fisheries observer programs ($34 million over 5 years). This contract adds 60 additional qualified personnel to our team, who serve as biologists and data collectors/analysts onboard longline (tuna) and shortset (swordfish – to reopen this year) fishing vessels in the Pacific. We are deeply honored to have been selected to support the program, especially as it embraces new tools, technologies, and processes for data collection, monitoring, and reporting in the region.
