The Employment Service was established in 1985 by the World Aquaculture Society to assist its membership and the international aquaculture community with current job and career information. The annual posting of jobs and resumes at WAS international and US Aquaculture Society (USAS) meetings, and the online job and resume databases via the Internet serve as a clearinghouse for employment opportunities and information. The job and resume databases are maintained throughout the year by the Employment Service Coordinator. All submitted job listings and resumes are usually posted within 1-3 days and resumes will be removed after 6 months.
Please contact the Employment Service Coordinator with all your comments, questions and suggestions.
Thank you, John Ewart
