Fisheries and shipbuilding are two of the crucial industries that make up Alaska’s economy. Join us at the next Alaska Business Forum to hear from maritime experts as they share the latest data, explain how they continue to gain capital, and answer questions about these growing sectors.

Fast facts on this topic:
The University of Alaska reports that shipbuilders can be found all over Alaska – from Fairbanks to Ketchikan, and build vessels ranging from ferries that are hundreds of feet long to watercrafts that can only hold a handful of people. Alaska’s deep maritime expertise makes shipbuilding a subject of interest to the business community, economic developers, and even policymakers.

According to the Alaska Journal, seafood processing is the largest manufacturing sector in Alaska, accounting for 72% of manufacturing employment. Alaska’s fishing industry catches and processes enough seafood each year to feed every person on the planet one serving or a serving for each American every day for more than month – that’s a lot of fish!
