The Opportunity

PIRSA Fisheries & Aquaculture maintains a pool of suitable candidates who subject to any vacancies occurring over the next 12 months, will be assessed for suitability and placement in Regionally based Fisheries Officer roles. This opportunity is to be part of the pool.

The Fisheries Officer is primarily responsible for providing a range of compliance services to the commercial and recreational fishing and aquaculture sectors, ensuring compliance with the Fisheries Management Act 2007, Aquaculture Act 2001 and associated legislation as they apply to the fishing industry. This includes making sure fishers know and understand fishing rules and requirements, providing a visible presence at all fishing locations at sea and on land, and where offending is detected, taking enforcement action as authorised under the Fisheries Management Act 2007.

The Fisheries Officer is required to communicate effectively by developing and maintaining collaborative relationships with stakeholders including internal PIRSA staff, fishers, industry representatives and the general community and be able to quickly resolve conflict situations. Fisheries Officers work in teams therefore applicants must always possess a team-first and safety focussed mindset.

Fisheries Officers receive extensive training to safely operate modern vessels, surveillance equipment and numerous systems and technologies. There is also an extensive focus on investigative skill development and related legal and administrative requirements.

Being a Fisheries Officer is a truly rewarding and exciting role. If you would like to work in a role that enables you to make a difference within your community and as part of a proud team, then we would encourage you to apply to be part of our pool.
