Fall Fishermen's Expo

ALFA and the Alaska Sustainable Fisheries Trust banded together to host the first ever Fishermen's Expos in 2016 and 2017, which offered workshops on topics such as fuel efficiency, fishing for sablefish using pot gear, and reducing sperm whale depredation on longline gear. Since then, the expo has evolved to focus especially on young people and those who are new to the industry by offering workshops focusing on business skills, beginner's courses in seafloor mapping, and safety courses.

 

The Fall Fishermen's Expo is part of an initiative by the Sitka Seafood Festival to involved more fishermen with the festivities. Visit alfafish.org or contact 747-3400 for more details!
