Our annual report shares highlights of Alaska Sea Grant’s work this past year. During the year, we’ve furthered our mission to sustain Alaska’s healthy coasts, ecosystems and economies, through research education and outreach. We continue to support future leaders in science and marine policy through our traineeship and fellowship programs and K-12 learning initiatives.

Our work is made possible through the support of NOAA National Sea Grant, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, our strong Advisory Committee, and many partnerships across the state and nation.
The Alaska Sea Grant Strategic Plan 2018–2023 was developed with input from stakeholders and partners who participated in regional community meetings convened by Marine Advisory agents, and through an online survey. Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory faculty and staff, and our 25-member statewide Advisory Committee, reviewed and added to this input.
Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center
The Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center (KSMSC) is a regional marine research and education center that serves as Alaska’s only workforce development and applied research center focused on the seafood processing and fishing industries, as designated by the Alaska State Legislature in 1983. KSMSC is a unique facility with classrooms, laboratories, a test kitchen and a pilot seafood processing plant from which the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) conducts research and provides technical assistance, workforce training and education to improve Alaska’s seafood industry.
