Alaska Alaska’s salmon hatcheries are good for business Alaska Journal of Commerce by Michelle O’Brien - October 6, 2022 Across Southeast Alaska, our economy is driven by a variety of sectors, built on tourism and cruise ships, seafood and processing, mining and timber. Over the past several decades, we’ve built a thriving business community across the region, trends that are echoed across the state. As we continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, our economy emerges too, building back from the losses we experienced over the past two years. However, one bedrock of our economy has helped support and ensure the survival of a significant portion of our business activity, both in Southeast and statewide: our state’s salmon hatcheries. https://www.alaskajournal.com/2022-10-06/alaskas-salmon-hatcheries-are-good-business Press Release: Murkowski Unveils Working Waterfronts Framework Murkowski.senate.gov - October 3, 2022 Solicits Feedback from Alaskans on Draft Legislative Proposal U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) today publicized a legislative framework to address working waterfront project needs brought forward by Alaskans.
