Nursery technician will be in charge of growing our purchased seed from 1mm as well as setting triploid larvae and growing it. We grow seed to sit on 3/8” screen in our on dock nursery. We then put them in flupsys or bags in the river for further grow out and management. Our setup has shallow waters close to the dock so there is a good area to monitor grow out. The technician is a full time job and would assist another full time technician who is returning this summer.
