New Commercial Fisheries in the Arctic?

September 27, 2012

AFDF is interested in the Arctic as a place to develop new commercial fisheries for the Alaska fishing industry. AFDF believes it is the appropriate organization to collaborate with researchers, policy makers and industry in an effort to develop these new resources.

AFDF staff has been monitoring policy and research developments and had discussions with several key policy makers regarding its interest. Although opening new commercial fisheries in the Arctic is a long term goal, AFDF continues to pursue this significant area of development in the near term.

We would love to hear from our Members on their interest in Arctic commercial fisheries development. Write to us at
