Program seeks young fishermen
The Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, a two-day symposium designed for fishermen under 40 or in the business for less than five years, is holding an Alaska Young Fishermen’s Summit at the Captian Cook Hotel in Anchorage on Jan. 25 and 26. The summit will address three topics: business management; the fisheries management process; and understanding Alaska seafood’s role in the world marketplace, including the importance of producing a quality product.
Each topic will be addressed through group discussions with invited panels of industry leaders and established fishermen. For more information, call Sunny Rice, Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program at 772-3381, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.marineadvisory.org/ayfs.
