DUTCH HARBOR ALASKA LEADS NATION IN COMMERCIAL FISHING LANDINGS


Dutch Harbor, Alaska was the leading port in the Nation in commercial fish landings in 2008. Fueled by pollock landing, statistics released by NOAA recorded that 612.7 million pounds of fish were landed in Dutch Harbor - nearly twice that of its closest rival, Reedville, Virginia, which had deliveries of 354.2 million pounds of product. In terms of value of the catch, Dutch Harbor finished in second place behind New Bedford, Massachusetts. The value of the catch landed at Dutch Harbor was listed as 195,000,000 million dollars, as compared to New Bedford, whose landings were valued at $241,000,00.

Alaska dominated the fish landing statistics for 2008, with Kodiak landing 250 million pounds of product. Naknek, Cordova, Sitka and Ketchikan all had landings in the top 20 ports in the Nation. Kodiak came in third place in terms of value of the product offloaded, with values of landings estimated at 98 million dollars.

Westport, Washington and Astoria, Oregon also had strong statistical commercial fish landings. Westport was in 11th place nationally in terms of pounds landed, and Astoria was in 13th place. The value of the catch landed at Astoria was reported to be 31.7 million dollars.
