The University of Alaska Southeast, Sitka Campus Fisheries Technology Certificate program provides practical skills and knowledge to students considering careers in fisheries technology.
The program offers two different areas of emphasis:
- Alaska Salmon Enhancement – introduces students to the principles, concepts and methods used in the production of Pacific Salmon with an emphasis on modern fish culture techniques use by Alaskan producers.
- Fisheries Management – introduces students to common sampling and monitoring techniques and parameters utilized by fish technicians in southeast Alaska including the management, law and economics of fisheries.
Students can choose to complete the certificate with either emphasis. Both require three credit hours of internship.
This certificate online course work integrates with the A.A.S. in Fisheries Technology program.
