I worked at Saltwater as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Pays well and provides an adventurous job opportunity in scenic locations, great way to save up money as you have little or no expenses, can see lots of whales and marine life in the summer

Cons

Working on fishing boats is terrible, lots of manual labor involved, no days off, long odd hours, terrible weather conditions, sleep deprivation, etc

    I worked at Saltwater full-time

    Pros

    Get to see amazing ocean sceneries. Good pay. Definitely a different job.

    Cons

    Absolutely don't work as an observer if you get sea-sick. Long times away from land.

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn observers out with extended months of work. Offer some sort of land pay.
