Seafood is one of Alaska’s major exports and connects us to major world markets. Alaska fisheries are rich with a variety of species and the state is known for its world-class fisheries management. The industry provides jobs to rural residents who often don’t have access to other opportunities. At Alaska Business we examine the fishing industry, looking at long-term trends as well as pending policies and fishing industry forecasts.
