Business of Fish Course: Tapping into Regional Seafood Development Associations

March 31, 2009, 12:00 – 1:50 pm

Although authorizing legislation was past in 2004, the growth of regional seafood development associations is slow. Currently, there are four regional seafood development associations and only two with a tax in place. However that tax is collectively worth over $1 million in annual revenues to the two groups, Bristol Bay and Prince William Sound. Learn about RSDAs from a panel of experts. The group will discuss the origins of RSDAs, how they are formed, what they can do and what they can’t do, and how they can be used to increase the ex-vessel value of Alaska seafood.
