PhD Project: Women in the Seafood Industry of the Northern Territory: Participation, Contribution & Workforce Retention
Participation in the seafood industry in Australia and more specifically the NT , has almost exclusively focused on male participation. This is despite approximately 25% of women who participate as fishers, boat owners, skippers and in other land -based supply chain and administrative roles often in family run businesses. There is increasing recognition of the role and contribution women play in the seafood industry, but their participation is declining due to a range of barriers. This PhD study will investigate the participation, contribution, and retention of women in commercial seafood industries in the NT. The closing date for expressions of interest is 16 January 2023
