Many think of sustainability as a relatively recent phenomenon, but Alaska has been practicing the sustainable management of its resources for the past five decades. Since the territory became a state in 1959, its Constitution has mandated that "fish … be utilized, developed and maintained on the sustained yield principle"— making Alaska the first and only state in the U.S. to have such language written into its Constitution.

So, you can feel good knowing Alaska's long-term fisheries management practices ensure the unmatched, delicious seafood you enjoy today will be available for generations to come. In fact, throughout the world Alaska's comprehensive fisheries management practices are recognized as a successful model of sustainability.
