The Alaska Chamber recently adopted a policy position regarding mariculture sponsored by AFDF and JEDC. The position is titled: Support diversification of Alaska’s economy including development of a robust mariculture industry. Several other policy positions were adopted which are relevant to AFDF members, including support for alternative certification for Alaska seafood, science based ESA listings and de-listings, and inclusion of the maritime industry in the list of Alaska’s priority industries. Fully position statements (including amendments) will be available at the Alaska Chamber website soon. Thanks to the Alaska Chamber for its support of the seafood industry!
