Be a Part of Alaska's Next Generation of Fishermen

Alaska's Next Generation of Fishermen Project published a series (PSAs) aired on coastal radio stations in an effort to better support and educate the next generation of Alaskan fishermen. They will also be sharing advice through their project's Facebook page on “Tip Tuesday”. We hope that by sharing these tips we can offer some hard won wisdom that can take years to come by to those in the early stages of their fishing careers!  Learn more at
