I'm Kaustubh Sandip Warde and I did my Masters in Marine Biology from KUPG Centre Karwar. I volunteered for a cetacean survey project which was carried out by WWF GOA, India. I have worked with Dakshin Foundation as a Project Assistant on the topic "Biodiversity and Resources Monitoring:- Monitoring hotspots of shark fisheries" under Trisha Gupta. The project was based in Malvan, Maharashtra and while being in Malvan I have also assisted on a project titled "Acoustic communication in Indian ocean humpback dolphin (Sousa plumbea) in a noisy coastal habitat". My main interest lies in elasmobranchs, fisheries, marine mammals and aquaculture. I have been working closely with fishermen community recently which gives me immense pleasure.
