FISHERIES OBSERVER PROGRAMS
North Pacific Groundfish Observer Program (NPGOP) - Alaska
Fisheries observers are biologists who work independently to collect a wide range of information onboard commercial fishing vessels and at shoreside processing plants receiving fish from Alaskan waters. Observer information is used by NMFS and partner agencies to manage commercial fisheries in the North Pacific.

Pacific Islands Regional Observer Program (PIROP) - Hawaii
The observer program is responsible for fielding longline observers to obtain data on incidental sea turtle take and collect fishing effort data. The observers document interactions of all protected species, tally fish that are kept and discarded, and process selected specimens for life history information.
The Pacific Islands Region uses observer data to calculate official estimates (e.g. protected species interactions) and produce technical reports. The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center receives biological samples for analysis.
MORE ABOUT THE PIROP
Openings for the Pacific Islands Regional Observer Program are now closed. Techsea is now accepting applications for the NPGOP with training scheduled May 5-23 in Seattle, WA.
