If you answered "Āe!", or know someone in your whānau that would,
then let them know that the Global Fisheries Scholarship is open for
applications. The scholarship is a joint initiative between Te Ohu
Kaimoana and Japanese seafood company Nippon Suisan Kaisha Limited
(Nissui) and allows for one lucky scholar to spend a year working and
learning about the global seafood industry while being based at Nissui’s
headquarters in Tokyo and around Japan.
The recipient will learn aspects of the seafood industry from
aquaculture to processing, food safety to food technology, sales and
marketing, all while immersing themselves in Japanese daily life. They
will also spend up to nine-month’s learning Japanese language and
culture prior to leaving New Zealand, as well as intensive language
training on arrival.
We are looking for Māori who have studied or work in fisheries
management, aquaculture, marine biology, business management and
fisheries or food processing and are looking at a career in the New
Zealand seafood industry.
Applications will be closing 5pm next Wednesday 12th September.
