Are you someone who thinks that the Seafood Industry is only about boats, fish catches and a life on the ocean wave? Well, think again. The modern Seafood Industry includes a wide range of specialisations and career opportunities to suit every skill set.
So whether you're academic or entrepreneurial, creative or hands on, take some time out to think Seafood, and listen to the call of the sea. Who knows? It might be calling to you.
There are also fantastic opportunities in the Processing, Research & Development and Marketing Sector, where the fresh fish and shellfish are just the starting point!
Teams of Scientists, Nutritionists, Seafood Technologists and Food Business experts use their creative, product development and marketing skills to turn the raw material into a whole range of researched and packaged innovative quality seafood products to entice consumers to exciting new taste experiences.
You can't have a Seafood Industry without trawlers and fishing. But did you ever stop to think that a fishing crew is like a football team? Everyone has a different job.
Are you someone who loves machinery? Do you love tinkering around, figuring out what makes things work? Do mathematical drawings look more like solutions than problems to you?
Then you might be just the kind of person who would take great satisfaction out of a career as a Marine Engineer.
And then there's Aquaculture. Instead of leaving it all to mother nature, there's now a huge industry in breeding, rearing and harvesting a range of fish, shellfish and seaweed - and terrific training opportunities courtesy of BIM.
The fishmonger and restauranteur are the face of the Seafood Industry for most people.
So training is absolutely vital in this sector to ensure top quality product preparation, seafood knowledge and customer service skills for all workers.
