The history of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center can be traced back to 1867. That is when Alaska, with its vast untapped marine mammal and fishery resources, was purchased from Russia for $7.2 million. More than 125 years later, research at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center continues to expand and evolve from those early investigations.

This eBook presents the historical timelines and accounts. It highlights many key events and subjects that have shaped the evolution of the Center as well as fisheries research in Alaska.
