The Aquaculture Pioneers program is launching its second year to support growth of Maine’s aquaculture industry and continue to cultivate talent in this important sector. This year Educate Maine is thrilled to partner with 20 aquaculture employers across the downeast, mid-coast, and southern coastal regions to support internship expansion at farms and hatcheries. Farm and hatchery interns hired through this initiative will be enrolled in the Maine Career Catalyst program and will become a part of a cohort focused on building skills and their network in Maine’s aquaculture sector.
All students interested in gaining experience and building skills in the field of aquaculture are encouraged to visit the Maine Career Catalyst - Aquaculture Pioneers website to review the available internship position descriptions and apply through the common application. We encourage anyone who is interested to apply. We are accepting applications from high school students, recent graduates, college students, and people with no academic affiliation.
