Dear Alaska permit holders and crewmembers,
Alaska’s commercial fishing, seafood and maritime industries, the State of Alaska, and the University of Alaska are working together to determine how we can all better support the current fishing workforce, and how to ensure that fishing is a vital career for the next generation of Alaskans.
Below is a link to a short online survey being conducted by the University of Alaska on behalf of the Fisheries, Seafood and Maritime Initiative Industry Advisory Committee. This group is developing a workforce development plan for these industries in 2013. Similar plans are already in place for the oil and gas and healthcare industries and the mining industry is also developing a workforce plan.
You can find the survey at:
The survey will remain open until March 1, 2013.
Your time and thoughts are appreciated. Please pass this announcement on to others. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Paula Cullenberg, firstname.lastname@example.org, 274-9692 or Torie Baker, email@example.com, 424-7542.
