Alaska’s seafood industry is the largest private sector employer in the state and integral to the Alaska and U.S. economies.
Harvesters, processors, fuel suppliers, power companies, machinists, shipyards, transportation and grocers are all part of the economic ecosystem supported by the seafood industry. Alaska’s abundant seafood resource provides irreplaceable access to livelihood and food security for Alaskans, Americans, and millions around the world.
