Description

Shellfish farming in Alaska has grown to a value of about $1 million since 1990. Growers cite seed availability, slow growth rates, labor costs, outdated technology, shipping costs, and harmful algal bloom closures as limiting profitability. There is a huge potential for growth and improvement, with Alaska's vast growing areas and the excellent reputation of Alaska seafood.
