POSITIONS AVAILABLE

ATTENTION CREWMEN: If you are a displaced crewman from the BS/AI Crab Vessel Buyback Referendum please look on our Training/Certification page for help with unemployment and job placement. If you are a current dues paying Union member, we'll be happy to post your resume on our "Fishermen Available" page. Contact Sara as to how to accomplish this.

If you are a crewman looking for work but not a member of the Deep Sea Fishermen's Union yet, just call Sara at 206.783.2922, she'll collect your dues and get you signed up in a New York minute.

Many of the below positions are now filled, however, during the course of the season positions may become available. Keep in touch with the Union (Sara at 206.783.2922), in case any of our skippers call and need a crewman.
If you do get a job from one of our postings we would appreciate you joining the Union. We can not continue to exist without the support of our membership dues. Thank you.

Please also take a look at these links to other websites we have found that have fishing jobs posted.
