Farming, Fishing, and Forestry
Workers in this group tend and harvest renewable resources and manage forests and public parks.
Overall employment in farming, fishing, and forestry occupations is projected to show little or no change from 2021 to 2031; this limited growth is expected to result in about 8,400 new jobs over the decade. In addition to new jobs from growth, opportunities arise from the need to replace workers who leave their occupations permanently. About 171,700 openings each year, on average, are projected to come from growth and replacement needs.
