      Monz, Chris; Schmidt, Jennifer I.; Hausner, Vera (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2019)
      This presentation outlines research involving 35 residents of Brevig Mission, Noatak, and Noorvik during March 2017 were asked to evaluate values and beliefs regarding technology, climate change, and subsistence. Interviewees indicated that technology was helpful in their hunting and subsistence activities, but it was also expensive and may contribute to taking larger risks. Furthermore, technology was not seen as making up entirely for the impacts arising from changing climate.
    • Challenges and Strategies for the Alaska Salmon Industry

      Knapp, Gunnar (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2002)
      The salmon industry is very important to Alaska—in particular to coastal communities.The Alaska salmon industry is facing an economic crisis. One cause of the crisis is competition from farmed salmon, which has severely depressed prices for Alaska salmon, however, farmed salmon is only part of the problem: the salmon industryalso faces other major challenges. The salmon industry is experiencing painful adjustments with severe economic and social consequences for Alaska.There isn’t any way to avoid painful adjustment. The issue is how best to create the conditions for a more profitable industry. This presentation provides an overview of the many complexities of the situation facing the industry in 2002.
    • Change, Challenges, and Opportunities for Wild Fisheries

      Knapp, Gunnar (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2003)
      The global seafood industry is in a period of rapid and profound change which is affecting every part of the industry. The key causes of change are the growth of aquaculture and globalization of the world economy. These changes are leading to increased pressure throughout the seafood industry to respond to market demands and increase efficiency. Wild fisheries face significant inherent challenges in competing with aquaculture in an increasingly globalized economy. Aquaculture has far-reaching effects on markets for wild fisheries. Many of these effects are negative, but some are positive. Presented to Conference on Marine Aquaculture: Effects on the West Coast and Alaska Fishing Industry

    • Commercial Fishing Safety Record: A National Perspective

      Knapp, Gunnar (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 1992)
      Commercial fishing safety is an important problem in Alaska. The kinds of problems which exist differ for different fisheries in Alaska - safety problems in the Bering Sea crab fishery are different than those in the southeast troll fishery. This makes it more difficult to define the nature of the Alaska commercial fishing safety problem or to figure out how to deal with it. The same things are true at the national level. Commercial fishing safety is an important problem throughout the United States. The safety problems in the Gulf of Mexico shrimp fisheries are different from those in Alaska fisheries. These kinds of differences contribute to the difficulty of defining or addressing the commercial fishing safety problem at the national level. This presentation reviews elements of a report entitled Fishing Vessel Safety: Blueprint for a National Program to provide a picture of what emerged in its exploration of safety problems at the national level. All of the data and graphs are from the committee's report, except some additional data for Alaska. Any opinions expressed are the presenters, not the committee's or the authors of the original report. Presented at the National Fishing Industry Safety and Health Workshop in Anchorage, Alaska on October 9, 1992

    • The Effects of State Revenue Options on Alaska Households (Understanding Taxes)

      Haley, Sharman (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2004)
      This presentation discusses how various options for raising additional state revenue would affect Alaska households. We’ll start with a little history about state spending and explain why there is a state budget deficit, often called the “fiscal gap.” Then we’ll briefly describe all the options for dealing with the fiscal gap, but focus the rest of the talk on the big ticket items: using permanent fund earnings and establishing state sales or income taxes.
