How can you get a job on a fishing boat?
Commercial fishing jobs what companies are there to find a job in Seattle?
Getting a job out of Seattle can be tricky... a friend of mine was stuck there a month and didn't find a job. He ended up getting a job through www.alaskafishingjobs.net and highly recommended the site. He had looked at some other web sites but most of them just offered factory (fish processing plant) jobs. I have been fishing a while now and know that captains don't hire people from job service companies- you have to know where and when to go look for a job, which is what the www.alaskafishingjobs.net site does for you.

How can one apply for a job in commercial fishing?
One must usually apply for commercial fishing jobs in person. Most fishing vessels are run by owner-operators, not large corporations, so one must speak with the captain personally to apply for a job. A complicating factor is that good boat captains do not usually have many openings, so one should attempt to inquire why previous crew members have left the boats. One strategy that could be used to help one's chances is to take a job on the docks or unloading catches, which would allow one to become known to boat crews and captains, and boost one's chances in applying or being approached about job openings.
