Smoker, William W., Ed.
This conference was an attempt to have the fishing industry join the state of Alaska in building fisheries education programs. Topics addressed in papers presented at the conference include: (1) fisheries as a part of life in Alaska, addressing participation of Alaska natives in commercial fisheries and national efforts; (2) the international perspective, discussing fisheries education system in Japan, Newfoundland fisheries, fisheries education in Denmark, and fisheries research and training programs of the Whitefish Authority (Hull, England); (3) technology of the fishing industry, including community college, university, and college programs; (4) fish as food, considering the educational needs of the seafood processing industry/workers and educational needs in food science and technology; (5) marine resource management, discussing aquaculture systems, constraints and outlook for fisheries and aquaculture, and education for marine resource management; and (6) the business of fishing, focusing on education for the business of fishing, educating fishermen and others to appreciate the importance of fishing as a business, and government involvement in United States fisheries development. Summaries of workshops considering fisheries and marine education needs in Alaskan elementary and secondary schools, planning for vocational/technical education, and university level programs (providing a survey of educational needs of fisheries/ecologists) are included.
