They participate in extraction operations and handling organisms for commercialisation. Water-based aquaculture technicians supervise maintenance of equipment and facilities (cages, rafts, longlines, bouchot).
Aquaculture cage technician: Aquaculture cage technicians operate in the production of aquatic organisms in water-based (freshwater, brackish water, salt water) on-growing processes in cages.
Water-based aquaculture worker: Water-based aquaculture workers carry out manual activities in the ongrowing processes of cultured aquatic organisms in water-based suspended systems (floating or submerged structures). They participate in extraction operations and the handling of organisms for commercialisation. Water-based aquaculture workers maintain and clean facilities (nets, mooring ropes, cages)..
Aquaculture harvesting technician: Aquaculture harvesting technicians operate the harvesting process of aquatic organisms’ production, managing the complex equipment and machinery used in the harvesting of specific cultured species.

Optional skill

Observe abnormal fish behaviour is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Aquaculture harvesting manager: Aquaculture harvesting managers control harvesting operations of aquatic organisms which entails understanding and knowledge of techniques and equipment used in harvesting processes.
