Alaska Seafood Facts

ALASKA

SEAFOOD INDUSTRY

 

Commercial fishing has framed the heritage
of Alaskans for more than a century. Each
year the seafood industry pumps
approximately $3 billion into the state’s
economy. It is the state’s largest private
sector employer — approximately one-fifth of
Alaska employment is attributed to the
seafood industry. Revenues generated by
Alaska’s seafood industry nearly equal the
entire state operating budget.
Alaska is a key player as a world supplier of
seafood. If Alaska were a nation, it would
rank as one of the top ten worldwide. More
than five billion pounds of seafood are
harvested off Alaska each year, making up
approximately 60% of all US production. The
total value of Alaska seafood production has
topped $2.5 billion annually for several years.
