Fisheries Technician


This course will focus on preparing you to work as a Fisheries Technician I for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The course will be focused on developing skills needed to stay in a remote fish camp and assist in collecting fisheries data that will support salmon stock assessments. The bulk of this class will be spent at a camp on the Wood River and will include a focus on skiff operations and basic maintenance/troubleshooting, bear safety including shotgun training, and learning different methods of data collection, both through counting and with a seine. Your instructors will be biologists and scientists that will share their stories and experience in their fisheries science careers to give a better sense of these career opportunities. At the completion of the program you will be ready to apply for work as a Fisheries Technician.
