Description:

New York Sea Grant is supporting a Fish to Dish Internship Program to aid in the development of a skilled student workforce capable of advancing and working in the industry in the future. More than 90% of wild fish stocks are either overfished or fished at or close to sustainable limits (FAO 2016), thus farm-raised seafood is playing an increasing role in meeting the growing demand. Development and promotion of education programs focused on current and novel seafood farming, processing and marketing technologies and practices are more important than ever to continue advancing the industry and increase production of domestic seafood. The program will introduce students to an industry with exceptional growth potential and empower students to pursue careers in Seafood Science and Aquaculture. This program receives direct industry support, with interns working with industry partners during the summer months. The interns selected for the program will receive hands on training in their assigned sector of the seafood and aquaculture industry and obtain a Fish to Dish education on the industry as a whole.
