ASMI’s Seafood Market Information Services provide the latest analysis of market conditions and news on the performance of Alaska’s seafood product portfolio. The Seafood Market Information Service is funded by a portion of the seafood marketing tax paid by Alaska seafood processors. McDowell Group provides the service as a contractor to Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI).
The Seafood Market Bulletin is currently published twice a year, provides the latest analysis of market conditions and news on the performance of Alaska’s seafood product portfolio and is available online to permit holders, processors, and other industry participants free of charge. It is funded by ASMI and produced by McDowell Group.
ASMI produces a report measuring the economic impact of the Alaska seafood industry in the state of Alaska (statewide and regionally), in Washington State, and in the U.S. economy overall. This report considers all of the direct, indirect, and induced economic effects of the Alaska seafood industry, including the entire value chain, from harvest to retail sales. The report also provides background information on harvest volume and value, production volume and value, and participation within Alaska’s seafood industry.
Every 3 to 4 years, ASMI surveys direct marketers, smaller processors, larger processors, and fishermen to get a detailed view of how ASMI’s marketing efforts and results are perceived by industry members. This information is critical to guiding strategic direction.
