Alaska is currently experiencing a shortage of fisheries technicians and fisheries biologists – a trend predicted to continue for at least the next 10 years. The University of Alaska Southeast, Sitka Campus, has partnered with industry and regulatory agencies to develop programs that can meet this growing need for qualified personnel. Companies within the fisheries industry have donated scholarship money to make internship opportunities, training and work experience a large part of the education process.
The resulting programs are the Fisheries Technology Occupational Endorsements, Certificates and the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Fisheries Technology. The UAS Fisheries Technology faculty are available to discuss job availability, career paths, or educational next steps.
Completion of our programs can lead to employment opportunities in a wide range of technical and non-technical jobs.
University of Alaska Southeast, Sitka campus is located in the charming fishing town of Sitka. To learn more about the historic town on Baranof Island, visit here.
