Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute
Seafood Market in Seattle, WA
Effective, precise management assures Alaska's fisheries are productive, sustainable, clean, and healthy-as mandated by the Alaska state government. Since admittance into the Union as the 49th state in 1959, Alaska has served as a model of fisheries management across the globe.

You should never allow frozen seafood to thaw until you are ready to use it, as refreezing seafood severely alters its quality. It is important to note that when the word "fresh" is applied to seafood, it doesn't necessarily mean that the fish was harvested recently, or is of top quality. The best tasting, highest-quality seafood is often frozen and it's not surprising that Alaska, the largest commercial fishing industry in the country, is also the leader in seafood innovation.
