Lat 37 Fisheries technicians are more often to be found 'in the field' rather than stuck behind a desk.

Extended periods away from home, inclement weather, small boats and considerable amounts of travel are part of the technicians brief. On the upside, they meet a diverse range of people and see a lot of the New Zealand coastline that most people never get to see. Our Fisheries Technicians have great interpersonal skills and have extensive experience in inshore, deepwater and off shore fisheries.

The intergity of the data collected is paramount and is often commercially sensitive and confidential.
