Fishermen Resources

The Fleet is the heart of Alaska Seafood

Alaska’s Commercial Fishermen are vital to ASMI’s success. Consumers are fascinated by the stories of Alaska’s fishermen and their families harvesting wild seafood in Alaska’s pure and icy waters. The commercial fishing industry provides the majority of  ASMI’s funding and so it is very important that the fleet be aware of ASMI’s marketing activities and be able to engage meaningfully whenever possible.
