It's become an annual tradition. SeaShare pools generous seafood donations from seafood industry donors, and the US Coast Guard Air Station in Kodiak loads up the palettes of fish for delivery to Kotzebue and Nome. This year we worked with Ocean Beauty Seafoods and North Pacific Seafoods to send a combined 17,000 pounds of frozen salmon and halibut up north on August 30th. That's 68,000 servings to be distributed to villages where access to seafood is limited, and a changing climate is making some traditional foods scarce.
Thank you, Ocean Beauty, North Pacific, and US Coast Guard!
