Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries Announces Seasonal Job Openings

The Department of Fish and Game, Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) seeks applicants for the position of Seasonal Fisheries Technician who will assist DMF personnel with implementing the recreational fisheries survey from March to December. The Access Point Angler Intercept Survey (APAIS) is part of the Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP), a federal survey designed by the National Marine Fisheries Service. The survey is implemented by all Atlantic coastal states. The goal of the survey is to generate estimates of recreational fisheries catch for marine fish species in Massachusetts waters. Field staff, once trained, work independently traveling from home to assigned sites on Cape Cod and the South Shore to interview anglers about their fishing experiences, collect a variety of information, and identify, weigh, and measure fish that anglers have kept. Assigned fishing sites include beaches, banks, piers, docks, jetties, and access points for private, charter, and head boats, including marinas, boat ramps and other points of entry to marine or estuarine waters. Head boat sampling occurs at sea (some positions will operate only from shore). The estimates generated from this work are critically important for managing fish stocks and sustaining recreational fisheries. The incumbent will assist other MA DMF Program personnel with additional projects as needed.
