The University of Alaska Southeast, Sitka Campus Fisheries Technology Occupational Endorsement program provides practical job-ready skills and knowledge in a reduced time commitment.

Just four web-based courses plus a hands-on intensive lab or internship!

The program offers two different areas of emphasis:

  • Alaska Salmon Enhancement - provides training for individuals interested in Pacific salmon culture practices. Courses introduce the fundamentals of fisheries enhancement in Alaska, basic fisheries biology, and related field techniques essential for working in hatchery or other salmon enhancement positions.
  • Fisheries Management - provides training for individuals interested in fisheries management. Courses introduce international and local fisheries management policy and law, fisheries economics, fish biology, and related field techniques as a working foundation for entry-level state or federal fisheries management positions.

Students can choose to complete the occupational endorsement with either emphasis. Both require either a 50-hour internship or a four-day intensive field/lab class.

This occupational endorsement online course work integrates with the Fisheries Technology Certificate and A.A.S. in Fisheries Technology programs.
