Within the National Fisheries Intelligence Service (NFIS), the Intelligence Analyst reports to the Intelligence Supervisor, and is responsible for conducting complex analysis of information obtained from multiple sources (e.g. human, signal, electronic and open source) which includes producing and disseminating tactical, operational and strategic intelligence assessments. Within these assessments, the Intelligence Analyst identifies information gaps, identifies trends/patterns, proposes hypotheses, tests assumptions, and makes reasoned recommendations/conclusions regarding serious threats/risk to the fisheries resource, maritime security, or National sovereignty.

The Intelligence Analyst makes recommendations and can influence the decision-makers within the group, who will determine priorities and information gaps for further collection and analysis.
