Diadromous Fisheries Analyst Needed
Integrated Statistics is looking for a Diadromous Fisheries Analyst to
support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
National Marine Fishery Service (NMFS) Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems
Research Team (ASERT), as it conducts field and desktop research
investigating the marine ecology of Atlantic salmon and the role of
diadromous fish as prey for nearshore Gulf of Maine predators.
populations of US origin Atlantic salmon are listed as endangered under
the Endangered Species Act. Atlantic salmon abundance has declined
since the 1990s and has remained low despite diverse population
structures and management regimes, suggesting that conditions
experienced in common marine areas in the Northwest Atlantic may be
responsible for current abundance trends.

preparations, sampling, tagging, post-project cleanup and equipment
maintenance, and inventorying. The Analyst will collaborate on data
auditing and analysis, and will assist with the development of
