Are you interested in working on a small-scale commercial fishing boat but want help getting started? Then we might have a program for you. ALFA’s Crewmember Apprenticeship Program (CAP) matches individuals new to commercial fishing or those looking to diversify their fishing skills with experienced skippers who mentor crew over short or long term apprenticeships. Our educational resources and on-the-water training help those new to the industry try out commercial fishing to determine if this career and way of life is a good fit. The goal of our CAP is to introduce more young people to commercial fishing and to help launch the next generation of successful commercial fishermen.
The application period for 2019 crewmember apprentices is from Wednesday, January 23, 2019 until Thursday, February 28, 2019. Contact Tara Racine at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
We also need skippers! If you’re excited to mentor one or more new crewmember(s), for as short as a day or as long as an entire season, please also email Tara Racine at email@example.com for more information. Thank you!
