Positions Available for 2016 Ocean Salmon Fisheries 3/10/2016

To Whom It May Concern:


The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Ocean Salmon Project (OSP), in conjunction with Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, is currently recruiting for multiple Fisheries Technician positions. All interested applicants should visit the PSMFC Career Center at www.psmfc.org/psmfc-info/careers/career-search and apply for this position.

Since 1962, OSP has collected dockside catch and effort data from California sport and commercial ocean salmon fisheries.  The project estimates annual salmon landings and fishing effort in the state’s ocean salmon fisheries. The project also determines the contribution of coded-wire tagged (CWT) salmon to commercial and recreational fisheries for use in ocean and inland management efforts.

This season, the California ocean salmon sport fishery is scheduled to open on or after April 2, 2016.  We currently anticipate commercial salmon fisheries will open on or after May 1, 2016 depending on port location.  Although the final seasons won’t be established by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and the California Fish and Game Commission until early April, we anticipate needing field samplers in the following locations: Avila, Morro Bay, Monterey, Moss Landing, Santa Cruz, Princeton/Half Moon Bay, San Francisco, Emeryville, Berkeley, Sausalito, Bodega Bay, Fort Bragg, Eureka, Trinidad, and Crescent City.

We appreciate your effort in making this job announcement available to potential applicants or other interested parties. Please forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested. If a physical copy of the job announcement is printed and displayed, please take it down when the jobs close on March 19, 2016.
