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.
