In January 2016, the Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program will host the sixth Alaska Young Fishermen’s Summit. AYFS is designed to provide information and opportunities for commercial fishermen early in their careers.
The 2016 summit will continue to focus on building leadership and networking capacity in the Alaska commercial fishing industry through three days of intensive training. The fast-paced program will feature industry leaders providing insights on fishing business management, the fisheries management process, and the role of Alaska seafood in the global marketplace. This year, we will also broaden our focus to take advantage of the coinciding Alaska Legislative session and International Pacific Halibut Commission meetings in Juneau.
