In Alaska, commercial fi shing is a way of life for tens of thousands of hard-working families. These are homegrown jobs, often passed down from generation to generation. Alaska is committed to preserving wild seafood for future generations to enjoy, and is the only state in the nation with a constitution that mandates that our fi sheries be managed sustainably. Beyond the constitutional mandate, Alaska's fi sheries are independently, third-party certifi ed to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) Guidelines for Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) and Guidelines for Labeling of Fish and Fishery Products from Marine Capture Fisheries. This internationally recognized standard was developed with the participation of the world's leading fishery biologists, environmental organizations and fi shery managers representing more than seventy countries. Support American fi sherman and the sustainability principles that they rely on, while boosting your Alaska seafood sales. 100% SUSTAINABLE • 100% WILD • 100% AMERICAN For more information on Alaska's commitment to sustainability, visit: http://www.alaskaseafood.org/sustainability
