Biologist II (Fisheries) Two Positions

Maine Department of Marine Resources/Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife

Jonesboro, ME, USA 🇺🇸

This is professional services position focused on scientific work planning and implementing aquatic habitat connectivity and restoration projects in the Bay of Fundy area, inclusive of watersheds from approximately Cutler to the Lower St. Croix drainage. Habitat connectivity and restoration will focus on native inland resident and diadromous fish. One position will represent native inland resident fishery interests on behalf of MDIFW and the other will represent the diadromous fish managed by DMR, however both positions will work on restoring all aquatic species of interest.  Both positions will collaborate and guide the implementation of the “Bay of Fundy Aquatic Connectivity Project” in partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service. This position fills a critical need to implement high priority habitat connectivity and restoration projects, initially supporting comprehensive planning, resource assessment, and outreach.  Successful planning will not only support subsequent needed funding for project design and implementation, which could total $30 million, but also provide funding to sustain both limited period positions beyond the initial 2-year duration.  More information on the “Bay of Fundy Aquatic Connectivity Project” can be found here
