BUSINESS For the Capital City Weekly SITKA - Wild Alaska seafood often travels great distances with a few layovers before arriving at the dinner table of seafood lovers. The journey begins when fleets along the coast of Alaska haul in billions of pounds of seafood each season. Fish are then delivered to processors to be cleaned and packaged. A growing portion of the harvest is sent to fresh markets, but most is sent to warehouse. Often the seafood waits in cold storage until shipped to buyers in the lower 48 and abroad.

Sitka's Community Supported Fisheries shortens the distance between local fishermen and local plates
