The Employment Service was established in
1985 by the World Aquaculture Society to assist its membership and the
international aquaculture community with current job and career information.
The annual posting of jobs and CVs at WAS international and US Aquaculture Society (USAS) Chapter meetings,
and the online job and resume databases via the Internet serve as a
clearinghouse for employment opportunities and information. The job and CV databases are maintained throughout the year by the Employment Service
The WASES is provided at no cost to businesses, academic and other non-profit institutions, NGOs, state/federal agencies, employed professionals and students in support of the international aquaculture community. Besides aquaculture, other fields like fisheries, aquatic sciences and seafood are included along with graduate assistantships, post-docs, and internships. Listings for CVs are removed after 6 months and job announcements are open until the closing date you set on the submission form. Jobs and CVs are typically posted within 1-2 days after receiving them.
Please contact the Employment Service Coordinator with all your comments, questions and suggestions.
