Cooperatives offer a business model for Alaska seafood producers to open new markets, create locally controlled processing, and pool purchasing power. This book will help you decide whether a cooperative is the best path to follow for your small seafood business, and tells the step-by-step procedure to start a seafood cooperative. In addition, you will learn about managing a cooperative, federal taxation of cooperatives, and new generation cooperatives. The authors have expertise in private business, economic development, law, commercial fishing, natural resource development, and cooperative management.

This booklet is part of the Alaska Fisheries Business Assistance Project (FishBiz), providing information and resources to Alaska's fishermen, processors, and marine-related businesses.
