The event is the 2017 Alaska Young Fishermen’s Summit. Noah Sunflower with The Alaska Marine Conservation Counsel joined Daybreak to talk about the event.
“The summit will focus on building leadership and networking capacity in the Alaska commercial fishing industry through three days of intensive training,” Noah explained. “The program features industry leaders providing insights on fishing business management, the fisheries management process, and the role of Alaska seafood in the global marketplace.”
Although there won’t be opportunities to apply for work at the summit, the event will provide invaluable experience that will give anyone a leg up when looking to break into the industry, as well as give connections to help you find work.
