My work with AMCC has given me the opportunity to give back to the marine environment that has provided so much for me and my family. I want others to have the chances we have had.
—Theresa Peterson, Kodiak Outreach Coordinator
Theresa Peterson came to Alaska in 1982 intending to spend a summer working in a cannery and getting a taste of Alaska. Thirty years later, Peterson still calls Alaska home. “I remember looking over Kachemak Bay and saying to myself, ‘I found it.’ I knew I had landed someplace special, and loved Alaska from the beginning.”
Peterson and her husband, Charlie, purchased their first boat in 1988, with money saved while working on a longline crew. “We worked hard and were paid well, making it possible to buy into our own fishing operation,” she says.
They have lived and commercial fished out of Kodiak since 1987, participating in Tanner crab, Pacific cod, herring, halibut, and salmon fisheries. Peterson feels fortunate to have invested in commercial fishing early on, when young fishermen had greater opportunity to step up the ladder of ownership.
Peterson works with the Alaska Marine Conservation Council (AMCC) during the fall, winter, and spring. A tireless advocate for local fishermen, she is engaged in AMCC’s Working Waterfronts and Fisheries Conservation programs that strive to bring a greater community voice to fisheries policy decisions that impact Alaskan coastal communities.
She also currently serves on a variety of boards, including the Advisory Panel for the North Pacific Fishery Management Council — an important and influential body in Alaska’s fisheries management decisions.
Catch of the Season Community Seafoods is a social enterprise of AMCC. This unique program has been in operation since 2010 and is modeled after the market-based solution of a Community Supported Fishery (CSF). Catch of the Season provides consumers with the opportunity to purchase high quality, locally sourced seafood from environmentally responsible fisheries and community-based fishermen. Past subscriptions have included Kodiak Tanner crab, Bristol Bay sockeye salmon, Norton Sound Red King Crab, and Kodiak Jig Seafoods cod and rockfish.
