Types of Maritime Workers Hired by Ocean Peace

Ocean Peace hires a range of workers to fulfill the demands of daily operations. Because Ocean Peace’s operations focus on processing fish as it is caught, the majority of positions are onboard their vessels.

  1. Deckhands play a critical role in the daily operations of the fishing vessels. They handle and operate fishing gear, assist with deploying and retrieving nets, ensure the deck’s cleanliness, and help sort and store the catch. These tasks require physical stamina and teamwork, as deckhands often work long hours in challenging conditions.
  2. Marine engineers are crucial for maintaining and repairing the mechanical and electrical systems on board. They conduct regular inspections and maintenance of engines and other machinery, troubleshoot mechanical issues, and ensure compliance with safety and environmental regulations.
  3. Processing workers handle the onboard processing of the catch, which includes cleaning, cutting, and packaging fish. They operate machinery that processes and preserves the fish and ensure adherence to food safety standards. This role demands the ability to work in cold, wet environments and perform repetitive tasks with precision and attention to detail.
  4. Captains and mates are responsible for the overall operation of the vessel. They navigate the vessel, ensure compliance with legal and safety regulations, oversee the crew, and coordinate fishing operations. Additionally, they manage communication with other vessels and shore-based operations.
  5. Cooks prepare meals for the crew, ensuring they have nutritious food during long voyages. They plan menus, manage food supplies, cook, and serve meals, all while maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in the galley.
