Alaska’s seafood industry is the third largest overall job-creator in the state generating approximately $5.2 billion in annual labor income and Washington continues to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of this. This resource is valued by consumers around the world and demand is increasing faster than production from wild fisheries. 

Hear from experts in the field as they discuss the state of fisheries in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska and how we can expand employment in the economy while also maintaining resource value.

  • Chad See, Executive Director, Freezer Longline Coalition  
  • Bill Tweit, Special Assistant to the Director, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Governor’s Appointee to the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council
  • Stefanie Moreland, Director of Government Relations and Seafood Sustainability, Trident Seafoods
