Alaska—While salmon prices across the state remain low because of competition from farmed salmon, fishermen and communities in Alaska are exploring ways to increase the value of the fish they harvest. Some communities are considering investing in publicly owned cold storage and seafood processing facilities to take advantage of emerging opportunities in this highly competitive industry.
A workshop aimed at helping citizens, community leaders, engineers, seafood
processors and fishermen determine whether a cold storage facility makes
economic sense will be held November 13 and 14, 2003, at the University
of Alaska Anchorage.
The workshop will be held at the UAA Commons Building, Room 107. There
is a cafeteria on site and parking is free. A fee of $75 will be charged.
Presentations and technical information will be available on the Marine
Advisory Program Web site following the workshop. To register or to learn
more, please visit the cold storage
workshop Web site or call the Marine Advisory Program office in Anchorage
The workshop is sponsored by the Marine Advisory Program and Alaska Sea Grant College Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, as well as Washington Sea Grant, Oregon Sea Grant, the Alaska Energy Authority, and the Alaska Department of Community and Economic Development.
