ASMI fishes for funding

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute last month put in this letter to the governor requesting $20 million to "mitigate past and ongoing economic harm to the Alaska seafood sector in markets that were depressed, lost and permanently altered due to the global pandemic."

Deckboss is trying to ascertain what came of this request.

Ashley Heimbigner, ASMI's communications director, provides this update:

"Thank you for reaching out to our office regarding the recent ARPA funding request issued by ASMI's board of directors on behalf of Alaska's seafood industry, which has been impacted by pandemic-induced market losses and sales disruptions. As we understand it, the request is currently under review by the governor's office."
