Alaska Sea Grant-supported researchers won a national award at Sea Grant Week in Portland, Ore., this month for a study on how to boost access to Alaska commercial fisheries by young and rural residents.

The Sea Grant Association, comprised of Sea Grant program directors from 33 coastal universities, presented its Research to Application award to ASG director Heather Brandon who accepted it on behalf of the investigators for the project entitled, Graying of the Fleet in Alaska’s Fisheries: Defining the Problem and Assessing the Alternatives.
