The Alaska Seafood Processing Leadership Institute (ASPLI) gives mid-career seafood processor employees a boost in moving up the leadership ladder, to keep the seafood industry strong and support the Alaska workforce. Companies sponsor experienced workers, typically mid-level managers with the potential to move up the ranks, to receive the intensive professional development.
The sixth ASPLI begins in November 2017 with a week of hands-on seafood processing instruction, a fish plant tour, and review of seafood and processing plant safety procedures.
