No Fish Farms Here - Eating Alaska
There are no fish farms in the State of Alaska. The result is a seafood tour unlike any destination in the world.
We read this story from Melissa Kravitz on USA Today and we swear it made our mouth water. If you've been to Alaska and eaten seafood there (Crab in my case. More than I could carry I think) you know that it's unlike seafood anywhere in the world. Alaska treats its fish with a lot of respect - way more than we do here in Florida. But that argument and its implications are for another article.
For now, let's talk about the path to Alaska's incredible seafood.
A state completely devoid of farmed fish, every piece of seafood you eat in (and from) Alaska is sustainable: The Last Frontier’s 34,000 miles of coastline are responsibly managed with permits and licenses to prevent overfishing and ensure healthy fish populations year after year, which makes sense, when so much of the local economy is dependent on healthy ocean systems — more than 31,580 fisherman (this includes women, it’s a bucket term) run Alaska’s 8,600 commercial fishing vessels.
