Alaska’s vast land and water resources, and diverse habitats support healthy and abundant fish and wildlife. With more than three million lakes, 12,000+ rivers, and more coastline than the rest of the U.S. put together, Alaska’s virtually untouched waters produce seafood that is pure and remarkably free of contamination. Feeding on marine organisms from Alaska’s icy pure waters, Alaska seafood is natural and provides healthy nutrients straight from the source.
The state of Alaska makes sure the seafood that is harvested from Alaska waters is a clean, high-quality product. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation contains the latest information on state monitoring of seafood quality.
No risk of harmful radiation
After the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, consumers worldwide have expressed concern about potential radiation in Alaska’s seafood. Testing by state and federal agencies continues to affirm that no risk of harmful radiation exists in Alaska’s waters or seafood. The Alaska Department of Conservation radiation website contains the latest information on state monitoring of seafood and water quality.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have Alaska fish sampled and tested for Fukushima-related radionuclides and report test results to the public.
