ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Marine Advisory Program agents across the state are helping thousands of commercial salmon fishermen apply for financial compensation, job training and educational benefits under the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA). The program was launched in January to help salmon fishermen hit hard by low salmon prices and competition from farmed salmon. MAP agents and specialists are conducting technical assistance workshops in communities across the state as part of the program. Thus far they have scheduled more than 75 workshops across the state and have already met with several hundred fishermen. For more information, visit the TAA Technical Assistance Workshops website.
