Observer Services Overview

Observers are at the heart of Saltwater’s work. Our team of professional biologists logs about 30,000 sea days each year, working aboard commercial fishing boats and research vessels to collect data on fish, sea turtles, marine mammals, seabirds, and the ocean. Saltwater’s observers and clients are supported 24/7 by experienced program managers, many of whom have been observers themselves. Our team understands both the importance of high quality data and the complex logistics of the fisheries.

Observer Programs

Saltwater works in a variety of observer programs. This allows us to recruit and retain a large pool of experienced observers, and to provide a variety of opportunities and assignments.  For more information on observer programs click on the links to the left.
