We are located 1.5 hours from Geraldton and 4 hours north of Perth.

Leigh Grange Fisheries uses specialized intensive aquaculture techniques and knowledge gained from years of internal research. We are well equipped to take advantage of new and arising opportunities for the growth and sale of fresh and saltwater fish domestically.

We are seeking two aquaculture technicians to undertake the day to day activities within the fish farm environment. Flexible rostering may be available with the potential to job share (for example two weeks on/two weeks off). There is the potential to advance to a managerial role.

  • Fish grading

  • Testing water quality parameters

  • Parasite checks and treatments

  • Harvesting fish

  • Fish pack out

  • Transport live fish

  • Cleaning of tanks and fish farm facilities

  • General maintenance

Qualifications and experience in the aquaculture field or a tertiary education is essential, however candidates who have a keen interest in aquaculture and who are hard working are encouraged to apply.

The position will be a hands-on role, so some experience in the use of power tools, forklift driving and problem solving is desirable. A driver’s licence is essential.

On sight accommodation and a work vehicle will be available to the right applicant.

We are offering a salary in the range of $55000 - $70000 per annum (negotiable based upon experience) plus superannuation. For additional information or to send your resume and a cover letter please email leighgrangefarms@gmail.com
