Kodiak fishermen earn more than others
Kodiak commercial fishermen are far better than any other fishermen in the state as their earning is more than others.
Good money and good life is what the Kodiak-based commercial fishermen are reaping as they earn more than the entire fishermen of Kenai Peninsula Borough. That's just one of the results from the 2011 edition of the Community Commercial Fishing and Seafood Processing fact sheet produced by the United Fishermen of Alaska.
As per the survey result most of the permit holders, crewmen and home-ported boats in Alaska's major fishing areas and quantifies the financial impact those, as well as processing jobs, have on their communities in the year 2010. It shows the importance of commercial fishing in Kodiak although Dutch Harbor-Unalaska lands more pounds of seafood with a greater value, the amount of money earned by resident fishermen pales compared to Kodiak.
By comparison, 622 vessels claim Kodiak as their home port, with more than 1,400 permit holders and crewmen calling Kodiak home as well. The estimated ex-vessel income by Kodiak residents was $127 million.
