The state of Alaska has over 3 million lakes, 12,000 rivers, 6,600 miles of coastline and 47,300 miles of tidal shoreline - making it one of the most prolific fishing regions on earth. 

With so much opportunity, commercial fisheries have long been an economic engine for Alaska, providing thousands of jobs and producing billions of dollars for the state.
