That's great, but who gets these jobs??
Everybody... residents of every U.S. state directly participate in Alaska fisheries
and Americans from every state consume Alaska seafood.
Seafood jobs are a blend of blue collar and white collar, skilled and unskilled
Seafood production jobs create
two-thirds of all jobs associated with Alaska seafood.
Alaska gets most of it's seafood from sparsely populated area.
Over 90% of Alaska seafood comes from regions containing less than 10% of Alaska's population. But...
The seafood is vital to residents who do live rural coastal areas.

In western Alaska over 40 percent
of adults are directly employed by
the Alaska seafood industry at some
point during the year.

Alaska's seafood industry created
over 34,000 jobs
