A diverse suite of fishery dependent data is collected in the Northeast as required by the Northeast United States federal fishery management plans in accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and the Sustainable Fisheries Act. Fishery dependent data include information characterizing fishing operations that can come from a variety of sources, including from vessel owners and operators, seafood dealers, onboard observers, the government, and from automated technology such as vessel monitoring systems. The NMFS Northeast Fisheries Science Center and the Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office rely on fishery dependent data to understand marine ecosystems and manage marine resources.
The web-application programmer will work closely with staff from NOAA NEFSC Fishery Monitoring and Research Division staff on the Fishery Dependent Data Initiative (FDDI). This is a key regional initiative that seeks to integrate and modernize the core fisheries dependent data collection systems in use in the Northeast United States. The programmer’s tasks include the design and development of new web-based applications with flexible architecture as well as the development of application programming interfaces (API) to better facilitate system-level integration. Will be expected to analyze FDDI project information requirements to research and suggest emerging technologies and how they can address future development needs.
Specific tasks include:
- Design and develop new web-based applications with flexible architecture as well as the development of Application Programming Interfaces (API) to better facilitate system-level integration.
- Support application development through integrated project work group meetings, data modeling, code reviews, and system reviews for quality and performance.
- Analyze project information requirements to research and suggest emerging technologies and how they can address future development needs.
- Define and refine user requirements.
- Implement and integrate security standards set by the NOAA/NMFS/ Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) and implemented by NEFSC’s Information Technology Division.
