Technicians for juvenile salmonid distribution and habitat use study on the Chehalis River

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) seeks to hire 3-4 qualified field technicians for the summer of 2013 to assist with data collection on juvenile salmonid distribution and habitat use in the Chehalis River basin. This is an exciting opportunity to gain critical skills in conducting field research in fish biology. Technicians will assist in all aspects of data collection including, but not limited to, snorkel and habitat surveys, PIT tagging juvenile fish, installing and maintaining PIT tag antennae’s, seining, electrofishing, and other associated data collection techniques.
