In 2016, Governor Walker established and appointed members to the Alaska Mariculture Task Force by Administrative Order No. 280, with the directive to provide recommendations to develop a viable and sustainable mariculture industry. On behalf of the Task Force, the following document represents the culmination of its work – the Alaska Mariculture Development Plan. Take particular notice of the vision, goal (grow a $100 million mariculture industry in 20 years), guiding principles, priority recommendations, and other important elements of the plan. This plan was funded in part by NOAA grant NA14NMF4270058, with support from the State of Alaska and organizations serving on the Mariculture Task Force. AFDF thanks these individuals/organizations for their support of the vision to develop mariculture in Alaska.
