Join us at the 2017 Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit!
December 6–8, 2017
Dena'ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska
The Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program presents the seventh Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit. AYFS is designed to provide training, information and networking opportunities for commercial fishermen early in their careers.
The summit will focus on building leadership and networking capacity in the Alaska commercial fishing industry through three days of intensive training. The fast-paced program features industry leaders providing insights on fishing business management, the fisheries management process, and the role of Alaska seafood in the global marketplace. This year, we will take advantage of the fact that the summit will coincide with the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council meeting in Anchorage.
CDFU is proud to offer an annual scholarship to young fishermen who fish in area e waters who wish to attend the summit.
This scholarship (set amount TBD) will help cover your flights and/or ferry and will completely cover your hotel room and registration fee. If you would like to attend and apply for a scholarship, please submit your interest via the form below by close of business on Monday, November 6.
