The Fish Site aquaculture mentoring program

The Fish Site is inviting applications for new initiative, which offers professional guidance and support to women and men at all stages of their aquaculture careers. It’s an innovative pilot project offering expert mentoring to professionals in the industry.

The project, which is currently inviting applications, is run in collaboration with an experienced mentoring consultancy who will provide support and virtual training for both mentors and mentees.

There are 15 mentee places available on the pilot 2019 scheme, and applicants are invited from any country, stage of career or aquaculture specialism. Successful applicants will be matched with a mentor, an established female aquaculture professional, and receive virtual training ahead of a programme of 8-10 developmental mentoring sessions over a 12 month period.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 28 February 2019, with training sessions scheduled to begin the first week of March.
