As an at-sea biologist working aboard U.S.-flagged commercial fishing vessels, you will gather fishing effort and location information, sampling for bycatch composition, and collecting biological data from both bycatch and target species. Observers go into the field for 70-90 day deployments based out of Dutch Harbor, AK. Observers are guaranteed subsequent deployment opportunities and salary advances. Positions begin with a 3-week paid training in Seattle starting 6/3/19.
Fisheries Observing is a challenging and unique position. This is not a 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. job--rather, twelve to fourteen hour days are the rule. Gathering, sorting, and weighing a sample at sea is a physically demanding job, and recording the data gathered requires a biologist s attention to detail. The work is further complicated by the fact that observers and fisherman have different objectives--diplomatic efforts on the observer s part, aimed at securing a mutually agreeable working environment, are often part of the job.
