Future of the Fleet 

The Alaska Fishermen’s Network works to build skill and opportunity for the next generation of Alaska fishermen. We value mentorship, stewardship, education, accountability, hard work and community health. We create and promote opportunities for fishermen to understand and engage in policy and management decisions, and become leaders in diverse arenas of the fish world on and off the water.

We are small business owners, crew and captains.

We are community and ocean stewards.

We are advocates for our livelihoods.

We are the future of fishing. 


From financing your next vessel to finding your first fishing job, we’ve compiled a list of resources to keep you on course.


From books to fellowships, AKFN projects are grounded in communities and geared toward building a better fishing future.

Work Connections

Whether you want fishing work or need help finding crew, the AKFN Jobs Board connects crew with captains.
