This easy-to-read handbook gives advice about planning a fish processing plant in an Alaska village. It focuses on small, locally owned fish processing operations in western Alaska, but much of the information is relevant to any fish processing operation, regardless of its location or size. This handbook gets you thinking about the pros and cons of starting a plant.

The handbook was published by the University of Alaska Center for Economic Development as part of an effort to support rural Alaska entrepreneurship. The Steps to Success for Rural Entrepreneurs series includes this handbook and several others on topics such as writing a business plan and starting a variety of small businesses.
