The Production Crew

Thank you for your interest in joining our Production Team. Dedicating your summers to the Alaskan seafood industry makes for an incredible adventure. We believe family is what fuels a successful team. We are thankful for our hardworking employees that make this industry thrive. We appreciate all of your diligence and support and we thank you for enriching the salmon culture every year. 

Equal Opportunity

Camtu's Alaska Wild Seafoods believes in Equal Opportunity. We pledge to not discriminate against employees based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information. All are encouraged to apply! 

Work Environment

Although Alaska is a beautiful place, the work that comes with the seafood industry requires diligence and perseverance. The jobs are physically demanding. Working conditions can often be cold and wet. Therefore, the floors will be wet and slippery. Due to all the running machinery in the plant, it may often be very noisy. Additionally, team members may be required to stand for long periods of time, up to 18 hours or possibly more.

Season Contract Term

This salmon fishery, known as "Area E," ranges from mid-May to mid-September. 

You can choose between two groups to arrive:

GROUP A - May Arrival

GRUOP B - June (or later) Arrival


Exact arrival dates will be announced by your hiring managers and the season end date is set by management as it gets closer to the end of the season. 

Important Industry Disclaimer

***While we strive to provide our employees with full work schedules, nothing is guaranteed as this industry is dependent on fish returns and weather. This industry depends on Mother Nature, but Mother Nature is often unpredictable. It must be understood that no hours are guaranteed.***
