Looking to advance my skills by following and developing hatchery protocols. As well as building and maintaining the hardware of fish rearing systems. I am looking for a company or farm that is willing to support my development as a fish biologist. There is a lot of room for innovation in the United States and I am eager to develop my technical skill set by working in the industry. My previous training in aquaculture has been in larval rearing, small systems design, and in the treatment of fish waste in recirculating systems. For much of my career so far I have been trained as a fish biologist and focused on the impacts of water quality on fish health and diversity.
