The Tanzania Fisheries Research Institute (TAFIRI) invites applications from suitably qualified Public Servants who wish to transfer to TAFIRI to fill Ten (10) vacant posts mentioned below:

Tanzania Fisheries Research Institute (TAFIRI) came after the collapse of the East Africa Community (EAC) in 1977 where each state had to take care of her own affairs. TAFIRI was established by the Act of Parliament No. 6 of 1980 and started operations in 1983 with the aim of promoting, conducting, and coordinating fisheries research in Tanzania. In 2016, this Act was repealed by a new Act of Parliament No. 11 of 2016.

Before the collapse, the Community had several functions, among which included fisheries research and development whereby two organizations were present: East African Freshwater Fisheries Research Organization (EAFFRO) and East African Marine Fisheries Research Organization (EAMFRO). Mwanza Centre was formerly a station of the former EAFFRO while Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS-Zanzibar) of the University of Dar es Salaam was under EAMFRO. Following the collapse of EAC, Mwanza Centre and IMS were handed over to the Fisheries Division in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism and the University of Dar es Salaam, respectively. At the time, there were two more freshwater fisheries centres under the Fisheries Division, namely Kigoma in Lake Tanganyika, which was formerly run by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations until the contract ended in 1978, and Kyela in Lake Nyasa.

Having taken over the activities of EAC, the Government decided to establish a Parastatal body to carry out freshwater and marine fisheries research in Tanzania, which led to the establishment of TAFIRI. Currently, the Institute is comprised of four Research Centres, namely Mwanza along Lake Victoria, Kigoma along Lake Tanganyika, Kyela along Lake Nyasa, and Dar es Salaam along the Indian Ocean. TAFIRI has also one sub-station operating under Mwanza Centre, which is located at Sota in Rorya District, Mara Region.
