Jobs: NMFS jobs for fishery scientists

Here are two jobs that might be of interest to recent fisheries grads, if you can send them in to the SAFS jobs page as well as any people you know who might be interested, that would be great.  One is for a person to work at a remote NMFS field station in SE Alaska, namely Little Port Walter.  The job title is Field Research Leader/Fish Culturist, and here’s a photo of the site.

There are over 1,800 current student veterans across our three campuses who currently call the University of Washington home, in addition to the countless alumni who have served.  For many who came to UW after military service, campus was not always a welcoming place to be a veteran.

SAFS in the News: Catching a diversity of fish species — instead of specializing — means more stable income for fishers

SAFS postdoc Sean Anderson is featured in UW Today:
‘For people who make a living by harvesting natural resources, income volatility is a persistent threat. Crops could fail. Fisheries could collapse. Forests could burn. These and other factors — including changing management regulations and practices — can lower harvests, which depresses income for farmers, fishers and timber harvesters. But the ways that these forces interact to impact income have been difficult to track, especially at the level of the individual worker. 

SAFS in the News: Old fish few and far between under fishing pressure

SAFS postdoc Lewis Barnett and professors Trevor Branch and Tim Essington are featured in UW Today:
‘Like old-growth trees in a forest, old fish in the ocean play important roles in the diversity and stability of marine ecosystems. Critically, the longer a fish is allowed to live, the more likely it is to successfully reproduce over the course of its lifetime, which is particularly important in variable environmental conditions. 

Job Opportunity: Research assistance needed

Jennilyn and I are looking for someone to help us do some research for my book and film project that we are working on. I was wondering if you had a grad student that would be interested in this type of work.

The overall theme of the book and documentary is the disconnect between the seafood industry and the consumer.

The pay rate would be $20/ Hr plus we would give them credits on book and doc.
