Seeking more than one species stabilizes fishing income

Commercial fishermen in Alaska who target a greater diversity of species have more stable incomes than fishermen who target one species, but diversifying isn’t easy, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

A team of researchers studied about 30 years of income and permit data from individual commercial fishermen in Alaska to learn how diversification affects income stability.

Staff Snapshot: Dawn Montano

When Dawn Montano arrived in Fairbanks in August of 1995, she had no intention of staying.

She hadn’t really wanted to come at all, but her parents didn’t want her sister, who had just gotten a teaching job in Fairbanks, to face the long drive north from Idaho on her own. Dawn dutifully went along on the trip and then helped her sister get settled during the fall, fully expecting to be back home by Christmas. But when she was offered a job that she really enjoyed, and soon after met her husband-to-be, she decided to stay—and Fairbanks has been home ever since.

“This project will bolster Alaska’s ocean economy in important ways as we work collectively to implement a more sustainable and diversified use of Alaska’s maritime resources,” said S. Bradley Moran, dean of the UAF College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.
