The Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program presents the seventh Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit. AYFS is designed to provide training, information and networking opportunities for commercial fishermen early in their careers.

The summit will focus on building leadership and networking capacity in the Alaska commercial fishing industry through three days of intensive training. The fast-paced program features industry leaders providing insights on fishing business management, the fisheries management process, and the role of Alaska seafood in the global marketplace. This year, we will take advantage of the fact that the summit will coincide with the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council meeting in Anchorage.
