Job Description:

Industry Funded Scallop Observer Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Openings; Massachusetts to New Jersey $240 to $305 per day Job Duties Must be available to take part and successfully complete company paid training in Falmouth, MA from July 16 through August 2. Following completion of training, Observers deploy on vessels from ports in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions targeting Atlantic Sea Scallops. Fisheries Observers collect scientific, management, compliance, and other data at sea. Observers live and sleep in cramped quarters and share common facilities. Vessels operate in ocean waters, 3-200 miles offshore in all weather conditions. Vessels range from 30-100 feet in length. Workload and Compensation Full time employment available based on minimum of 12 sea days per month. Trip assignments will range from 1-14 days in duration. Fisheries observers are allocated to a primary port to deploy from the majority of their trips; however, willingness to travel to cover locations other than their primary ports is necessary. Observer pay is based on a daily rate for at-sea time and may be eligible for additional land hours to include travel and debriefing. Observer pay is commensurate with experience, starting at $240/day, with raises based on seadays completed. At the top rate; observers with 450+ seadays earn $305/day. Trips lasting 0-24 hours are paid at the full seaday rate. Trips over 24 hours are paid by dividing the total trip length by 24 hours and multiplying by the seaday rate. Vessels provide observer meals on multiday trips and observers provide their own meals on day trips. An additional $25.00 is added on top of observers seaday rate for day trips to cover the meal cost. MRAG requires a 1-year commitment if hired.
