Global Fisheries Scholarship – a year in Japan for Rangatahi Maori

1 min read

Are you seeking the ultimate training experience of a lifetime in the seafood industry? Well, here it is! The Global Fisheries Training Programme (GFS) is an elite scholarship offered each year to young Maori.

Established in 2002 by Te Ohu Kaimoana (the Maori Fisheries Trust) and Nippon Suisan Kaisha, Limited (Nissui), the scholarship presents an amazing opportunity for a committed, hard-working individual to spend time working within a major international fishing company and to be immersed in Japanese daily life.

The successful recipient will spend almost a year in Japan throughout 2012 as a trainee at Nissuis headquarters. You will undertake a rigorous ninemonth language and cultural programme prior to leaving New Zealand.

We are looking for Maori who have studied or work in fisheries management, aquaculture, marine biology, processing or business management and are looking to make a career in the seafood industry. The scholarship includes air travel, accommodation and a training allowance during the year.

  • Applications close 5.00pm on 25 February 2011

For application forms or more information, please contact either Maraea Bellamy or Helena Patuwai at Te Ohu Kai Moana on (04) 9319-500, or by email at [email protected] or [email protected].
