Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute

ASMI is a public-private partnership between the State of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry established to foster economic development of a renewable natural resource. ASMI is playing a key role in the repositioning of Alaska’s seafood industry as a competitive market-driven food production industry.

Since admittance into the Union as the 49th state in 1959, Alaska has served as a model of fisheries management around the globe. One reason for this is that Alaska remains the lone state in the nation with a constitutional mandate stipulating all fish “be utilized, developed and maintained on the sustained yield principle.” U.S. law has governed sustainable fishery management since the passage of the Magnuson- Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act in 1976. This act requires that fisheries meet 10 strict national standards of sustainability.
