Dear Mr Albert,

I am writing to apply for the position of Aquaculture Farmer with Yellow Yabbies, as advertised in the Aqua Leader on the 30th April 2009.

I successfully completed the Diploma of Seafood Industry (Aquaculture) in 2001 and I have since worked in two private fisheries that cultivate barramundi, prawns, marron, yabbies, silver perch and mussels.

On Private Perch Farm, I was instrumental in the design and management of ponds and the hatchery. I acted under the supervision of highly experienced and respected aquaculture farmer, Ron Amarron. I assisted in the building and maintenance of the hatchery over three years, and Mr Amarron praised my complex and impressive understanding of hatchery design and the impeccable condition that I maintained within the hatchery and the ponds under my supervision.

In 2004, I was offered a role with a larger aquaculture farm and I felt that I was ready for greater responsibilities and a more diverse workload. I joined Barra Barn Farm as an Aquaculture Technician, where I fed stock, prepared algal cultures, collected and recorded growth and water quality data and maintained a complex and up-to-the-minute online spreadsheet to measure the health and progress of our stock.

I also managed the team responsible for bagging and boxing stock for live transport to the processing plant, ensuring that no damage was caused to stock or facilities and guaranteeing the highest quality of barramundi and mussels arrived at the plant in a timely manner.

My knowledge of aquaculture, hatchery design and maintenance, ability to initiate and maintain reliable and articulate records of growth and water quality and my passion for enhancing the quality of aquaculture stock make me the ideal candidate for the role of Aquaculture Farmer with Yellow Yabbies. I have attached my resume and I encourage you to contact me regarding my application.

Yours sincerely
Katya Pivorava
