The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is pleased to host its first-ever “Next Generation Trade Mission” from February 6-12, 2020. Nine seafood professionals under the age of 40 will travel from six countries and the US to Washington and Alaska to learn about Alaska seafood species, harvesting and processing methods, sustainability and more. Participants will spend February 6-7 in Seattle and February 8-11 in Kodiak. Their program will include plant tours, educational seminars on fisheries management, technical training, and industry meetings.
The purpose of the mission is to educate the next generation of the seafood trade about the virtues of Alaska seafood and convert younger industry professionals into lifelong Alaska seafood customers. If you have any questions about the itinerary or participants, please contact Alice Ottoson-McKeen at AOttoson-McKeen@Alaskaseafood.org.
