Organization Information

Name: Alaska Fisheries Information Network
Acronym: AKFIN
Type: FIS Partner Organization
Library: Alaska Fisheries Information Network

AKFIN was established in 1997 under the direction of the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) to consolidate, manage and dispense information related to Alaska's commercial fisheries. We were founded in response to an increased need for detailed, organized fishery information to help in making management decisions.

AKFIN maintains an analytic database of both state and federal historic, commercial Alaska fisheries data relevant to the needs of fisheries analysts and economists and to provide that data in a usable format.
