Want to have an adventure in Alaska? This new program will give you the experience you need to get a commercial fishing job
The Gig Harbor BoatShop and Washington Sea Grant have partnered in developing a new Purse Seine Crew-Member Training Program. The six-day program will first be offered in the fall of 2021 in Gig Harbor, Washington (exact dates are to be determined).
- Designed by commercial fishing vessel captains and Washington Sea Grant, the program will equip you with fundamental crew-member skills.
- Program participants will be introduced to the basics of net mending, navigation, line handling, sea safety and on-deck skills on land and aboard fishing vessels.
- The program will take place at the Gig Harbor BoatShop and aboard Gig Harbor-based commercial fishing vessels.
- Program participants will be provided with a Crew Training Certificate and list of employment opportunities upon course completion.
