Become a fisherman

If you choose a career as a fisherman, you will have lots of opportunities for testing your strength in the open air.

It is no 8-4 job, and your pay is paid out as a share of your take once the overheads have been deducted. This means that if you catch a lot of fish, you will earn a good pay and vice versa if your catch is small.

If you want to work as a fisherman, you must first complete a three-week safety course. If you are 18 or over, you can now sign on to a vessel as a fisherman. On the other hand, if you are under 18, you must enrol for the fisheries’ two-year basic training programme. Regardless of your age, we recommend that you complete the fisheries’ two-year basic training programme as it provides you with a good foundation for working as a fisherman.

If you later discover that you want to be captain of your own ship, you can pursue further training to become a skipper.
