Aquaculturists

Work Environment

A fish farm is not much different from a mink farm or other operation aimed at raising high volumes of animals. Those who don't like that idea should think twice about this career. On the other hand, fish farms and fish hatcheries give aquaculturists the opportunity to work outdoors, to apply scientific education in a concrete way, and to make a difference in a young and growing industry. Some fish farm operations are small, and some are large; trout farming, for example, is made up of both small and large operations. This variety allows workers in the field to find the size and style of operation that's right for them.
