UAS Ketchikan Fisheries Technology
Approved by Board of Regents
May 13, 2004
Ketchikan, Alaska - Fisheries Technology is a newly approved
degree program at the University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan.
Students can achieve a one year certificate and a two year associate
of applied science degree in fisheries technology beginning fall
2004. The new program is the only two year program in the state
focusing on broad fisheries technician training. The University
of Alaska Board of Regents approved the Fisheries Technology
Program at the April 15-16 board meeting in Sitka.
UAS Ketchikan has been offering
courses in fisheries technology over the last two years in preparation
for program approval by the Board of Regents. The Alaska Department
of Fish and Game granted the University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan
$140,000 from the Southeast Sustainable Salmon Fund to develop
a fisheries technology program in 2001.
The program goal is to help
develop well-rounded fisheries technicians with broad backgrounds
in the practical and academic skills of fish and invertebrate
culture, fisheries habitat analysis, fish stock assessment and
wild stock management for both the public and private sector.
