With such a wide variety of potential careers, fishing qualifications are equally diverse, ranging from entry level in-house training courses to post-doctoral studies. Education and training opportunities have also evolved over many years in tandem with industrial development. As a result there are numerous options for anybody setting off on a fishing career path, whether on a deep-sea trawler or behind a desk at corporate headquarters.
The fishing industry norm minimum education level is grade 9, preferably with competence in maths and science. In this regard entry-level minimum education is slightly lower than other seafaring careers, such as commercial shipping.
