Education and Training Requirements

High School

There probably are not many classes offered at your high school that will involve you working directly with fishing and boats, especially if you live far from the water. But there are courses that can give you background for the career. Geography and history will teach you about the climates and industry of various fishing villages and port cities around the world; in biology class, you will learn about marine life. Agriculture courses may also include units in the fishing industry. Take shop courses, as you may be required to repair your fishing machinery. Business courses will prepare you for record keeping and accounting details of self-employment.
