Former Fish and Wildlife Technician II at Alaska Department of Fish and Game
almost 2 years ago
Piloting river boats in all weather conditions. Constantly trouble shooting and repairing scientific equipment and fishing gear. Taking length, sex and tissue samples from hundreds of fish. Spending all of your time outside. The amount of free time depends on the camp and the season. There were some weeks with little extra work. Other weeks I would be working over 12 hours a day to get a fishwheel spinning.
