The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s (PFBC) Division of Habitat Management has seasonal Fisheries Biologist Aide (FBA) opportunities that might be right for you.  As an FBA, you will get an inside look at the conservation efforts being conducted by the PFBC during fish habitat improvement projects on the streams of Pennsylvania.
