LEARN MORE about the program

Fisheries are the largest private employer in Alaska

National Geographic has called Alaska fisheries the best-managed in human history. Between 70,000 and 80,000 people earn their living in fisheries jobs, and the next 10 years will see a large increase in the need for scientifically trained technicians, managers, and ecologists to work in the fisheries industry.

Knowledge is vital for today's Alaska fishing industry jobs. Ecology, biology, microbiology, business management, computer skills, communication skills, cultural understanding ... a lot of education is necessary to make a rewarding, life-long career in today's fishing industry.
