Support Barnacle Food’s plan to sustainably harvest kelp in Southeast Alaska. As the Kelp Management Plan Intern, you will become part of the Barnacle team of food enthusiasts creating unique products from Alaskan coastline ingredients.
Barnacle is working to formalize a kelp harvesting management plan and is looking for an intern to assist with research and communication. Apply your interest or course work in marine sciences to connect with researchers, provide input, and gather data on sustainable ocean harvesting. Compile information from government officials and regulatory professionals about harvesting regulations and provide input based on your findings.
In addition to this project, you will likely work on other aspects of the Barnacle Foods business.
While this internship position can take place remotely, the Barnacle team would prefer the intern to be on-site at their Juneau, AK, location. You may have the opportunity to accompany Barnacle team members on daytrips via boat to harvest kelp and conduct kelp bed surveys.
