Reviewer of 17 journals, 12 of then internationals. Member of 6 scientific societies, including the New York Academy of Sciences. Has occupied 11 institutional responsibilities, including more than 4 years as Research Director at the National Aquaculture Enterprise (Cuba) and Head of the Genetic and Reproduction Laboratory and Marine Fish Pilot-scale plant at the Research Centre for Food and Development (Mazatlan, Mexico). Director of 14 research projects in Cuba and 14 international projects. Has designed 25 research, pilot-scale or commercial aquaculture facilities, two for FAO projects and 12 in other countries, including the first pilot-scale hatchery for tropical marine fish in Mexico (one million US dollars) at Mazatlan (Mexico), and another a pilot-scale and commercial fish production plant (including the hatchery) for the Nicaraguan Fishery and Aquaculture Institute, thorough a Norwegian project in 2008.
