If you enjoy working remote, CIAA is the organization to work for
Seasonal Hatchery Technician (Former Employee) – Kenai, AK – February 3, 2017
Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association has various job opportunities in multiple locations in Alaska. It is a great organization to work for and it involves hard work, but it is worth it. I worked remote both times I worked for CIAA and I learned a lot about myself. You need to be able to work independently, as a team member and be flexible. Hatchery work is completely different than working at the fish weirs and you must be able to work some 5 hours days or possibly 14 hour days. Hardest part of the job was living remote with a small number of co workers, so keeping yourself busy by hiking, reading and doing activities is important. I learned how to seine, sort fish, spawn salmon, identify 10+ species in a split moment, how to live remote, and everything that goes into working at a weir and a hatchery. It was a wonderful experience, and it is a great organization.
