West Coast Fishing – An industry of opportunity
Career opportunites via the Fishing Academy & the Westport Fishing School
The seafood industry is a proud combination of tradition and technological innovation.
New Zealand fisheries management is recognised as one of the most sustainable in the world and the fishing industry on the West Coast is a thriving and supportive industry.
Job opportunities in commercial fishing are vast and our West Coast fishing companies are looking for eager young people to recruit and develop for long term, rewarding jobs.
Our West Coast Commercial Fishing Academy Training Programme will teach the skills needed to enter a career on a commercial fishing boat. Participants will learn the shore-based skills required to become a successful fishing operator. From there, the career pathways are many and varied – from deckhand on a commercial fishing boat through to becoming skipper; or maybe move into a land-based role in seafood retail, sales or management.
