Job Summary
This is a permanent, full-time, professional-level position working in the Harvest Management Division of the Lummi Natural Resources Department (LNR). Under limited supervision from the Fisheries Harvest Manager, and the direction of tribal policy representatives, the Shellfish Biologist III will be responsible for coordinating LNRs management of the Lummi Nations commercial dive fisheries within the tribes usual and accustomed fishing grounds and stations (U & A). Within existing regulatory frameworks, the incumbent will actively participate in all aspects of the co-management process for fisheries targeting subtidal marine invertebrates. This position requires the ability to plan, implement, and oversee field projects, including scheduling and supervising fishery monitoring and scientific diving operations, troubleshooting problems in the field, managing all data collection, entry, and reduction, and completing all reporting requirements for the commercial dive fisheries. Principal management duties are similar between fisheries, but general duties will vary across targeted species, which include California sea cucumber (Parastichopus californicus), green and red sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis and Mesocentrotus franciscanus), geoduck clam (Panopea generosa), and pink and spiny scallops (Chlamys rubida and C. hastata). Incumbent must be a responsible and independent worker who is highly organized. Incumbent must also possess leadership qualities, problem solving and communication skills. Work will, at times, result in exposure to potentially adverse weather and sea conditions and will require physical stamina in the field.
