Nordic plans to hire as much qualified workforce as possible from the local area.
Nordic expects to offer about 100 full-time jobs with benefits in Phase 1, and up to 150 when the facility in fully built out. In addition, there will be many indirect jobs generated in support of the facility (truck drivers, food service, etc.)
Nordic expects approximately 250-300 construction jobs during the demolition and construction period.
Nordic is working closely with College of the Redwoods to revitalize their aquaculture program and with Cal Poly Humboldt to ensure a steady pipeline of LOCAL qualified professionals. Nordic is also working with the Humboldt County Office of Education to introduce information to students about careers in aquaculture, support in-classroom educational programs and more.
