Because of the trade war and the 25% tariffs imposed by China in 2018, Alaska’s fisheries industry has been particularly damaged. For this reason, Alaska is on the look-out for new trade destinations.

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) has announced that it seeks to expand its brand of seafood products from this state to other markets apart from the Asian giant, which is currently its main country for exports and a reprocessor of fish products.

Thanks to a federal agricultural promotion subsidy of 5.5 million dollars, Alaska is seeking to reach non-traditional markets such as the Asian southeast and South American countries.
