Fisheries

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.

The Marx Bros. Café

January 2020

Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
