Hatchery Positions

Aquaculture careers, such as working at one of our land-based hatcheries, involves feeding and caring for salmon during the initial stages of the life cycle of salmon, from egg through to parr. Typical duties of hatchery technicians involve spawning brood fish to gather eggs, feeding, grading and vaccinating fish, cleaning and maintaining holding tanks and other equipment and monitoring water quality and other fish health diagnostics. Hatchery staff have an interest in animal care, enjoy working outdoors and doing physical and repetitive tasks where attention to detail is important. Maintenance and technical skills are definite assets for these aquaculture careers and support the beginning stages of the life cycle of salmon.
