Marine Fisheries Management Internships

Due to the COVID-19, the Division of Marine Fisheries Management will not be hosting a Spring or Summer 2021 Internship. We appreciate your interest and recommend applying for the Fall 2021 Internship if it becomes available.

The Division of Marine Fisheries Management develops regulatory and management recommendations designed to ensure the long-term conservation of Florida's valuable marine fisheries resources. Alongside developing fishing regulations, the Division monitors habitat and fish populations, conducts public outreach, and serves as a liaison to federal agencies on marine issues. Our interns work within all aspects of the Division by participating in field visits, meetings, and other relevant agency events as available. 

Marine Fisheries Management Internships offer opportunities to gain professional experience in project management, marketing and communications, public outreach, and fisheries management. Internship tasks and projects are highly varied and tailored to the selected interns’ major, knowledge, and interest. 

Previous projects include developing maps in GIS, working on marketing and education materials, creating webpages and social media posts, and drafting management documents.
