A great culture amongst employees, something that is not cultivated but just exists.
With a strong focus on production rates the ever increasing yield is only a sign that this company is heading toward a solid position in the stock market.

For those with initiative and the energy to create a work place worth waking up for, the opportunities are there for a career in which the options are endless.

As the company is at a milestone now in 2015, change is all around and improvements are always around the corner.
Pros
Great culture
Cons
Communication

7 day on and 7 day off roster. Lived on board the barge for 7 days. Daily routine to be completed of computer readings for fish feed and maintenance of fish cages, nets and feeders etc.
Management in general was good. General manager of site suffered depression and had good and bad days, plus "favourites". If you were not on the favourite team, it was definitely a disadvantage.

Co workers were good an mostly helpful and eager to learn.

Hardest part of the job was living on the barge and could not go anywhere for 7 days and nights. No alcohol allowed on the barge at all and sparse living conditions at the time. This has since been improved by a new barge.

Most enjoyable part of the job was that once the work was completed for the day, the rest of the day was free to relax.
Cons
Possible long hours and some night duty if problems or bad weather.

Pros
