The state's fisheries average over $11.2 billion in revenue per year and account for nearly 62 percent of the volume of fish and seafood landed in the United States. A substantial three out of four fish processing jobs are filled by non-residents of the state. This number has increased every year since 2007 and is now at 76.6% overall and in some regions it is over 90%.
