New Look, Same Mission
As we continue to connect and conduct business in new and socially distant ways, ASMI utilizes virtual tools to communicate with our key audiences. For example, Executive Director Jeremy Woodrow recently presented to the Alaska Senate Resources and House Finance Committees as well as the Southeast Conference Mid-Session Summit all via Zoom.

You may have also noticed a new look to our monthly marketing email update. This is a result of ASMI’s recently completed brand guide designed to align and strengthen the Alaska Seafood brand across programs and markets.

Whether conducting virtual trade show webinars and product demonstrations, growing ecommerce promotions or creating new high quality video and digital content, the ASMI team is executing our mission to increase the value of Alaska’s seafood resource.
