40 Years of Fish: ASMI Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Forty Years of Fish Cookbook

Looking back on 40 years of increasing the value of Alaska’s seafood.


Established via Alaska state statute in 1981, the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute has spent the last four decades bringing together expertise across all aspects of Alaska’s iconic seafood industry to navigate changes at home and abroad ensuring Alaska’s wild seafood resource retains its competitive advantage in global markets. 

Led by a seven member board comprised of industry representatives, including large and small seafood processors and harvesters, which incorporates input from committees comprised of industry members across a range of all major species (crab, salmon, shellfish and halibut/sablefish) and operational committees (international, domestic, seafood technical, communications and global food aid), ASMI has grown into a world class organization promoting wild Alaska seafood all over the globe.

To commemorate this milestone, we’ve partnered with seafood editor Jessica Hathaway to curate an in-depth retrospective about ASMI’s history, complete with interviews from current and former industry leaders.

In celebration of the incredible partners and Alaska Seafood advocates that make ASMI’s work possible, we created 40 Years of Fish, a cookbook featuring a curated collection of our best recipes celebrating Alaska’s iconic species with some newly developed by one of Alaska’s greatest chefs.
