Alaska's Fishing Industry

The fishing industry is Alaska's largest private employer and employs over 56,600 people for summer, seasonal and year-round employment plus another 22,000 indirect jobs with the state of Alaska. 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 percentage of fish processing jobs are filled by non-residents of the state. Many workers are college students and adults who spend a season or two in Alaska earning great money, meeting new friends, and having the experience of a lifetime.
