  • MD DNR Natural Resources Biologist I

    Post Date: Nov 16, 2018

    The Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Fishing and Boating Services, is currently accepting applications for a Natural Resources Biologist I (Recreational Harvest Data Program Biologist) to assist with program support of the saltwater fishing survey in Maryland. This survey is part of the National Marine Fisheries Service Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP), which develops estimates of recreational marine fishing activity and harvest for Atlantic states.

    As the Recreational Harvest Data Program Biologist, this position will assist in the field management of the Access Point Angler Intercept Survey (APAIS) in Maryland. The main purpose of this position is to assist in scheduling, planning, organizing, monitoring and reviewing the work of APAIS field staff. This position will help to coordinate and conduct field survey activities, including field staff assignments, quality control/quality assurance checks of assignment data, maintenance of site and vessel registry information, and submission of weekly data to Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP).

    Field staff travel to assigned sites to interview anglers about their fishing experiences, collect a variety of information, and (when applicable) weigh, measure, and identify fish by species name that the anglers have caught. All data must be collected and recorded according to strict survey protocols. Assigned sites can include beaches, banks, piers, docks, jetties, and access points for private, charter, and head boats, including marinas, boat ramps and other points of entry to marine waters.

    This position is based out of the DNR Annapolis office. Some of the position duties may require in-state travel.

    The survey is conducted 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, as such support of field staff is likely to occur on nights, weekends and holidays.
