Article: Urban harvests: food security and local fish and shellfish in Southcentral Alaska

Authors: Hannah L. Harrison and Philip A. Loring

An article titled “Urban harvests: food security and local fish and shellfish in Southcentral Alaska” has recently been published in the Agriculture & Food Security journal. The article examines the potential impacts of export-oriented commercial fisheries and tourism-oriented sport fisheries on Alaskan food security. To do so the authors conducted interviews on two food fisheries – the Kenai Peninsula region of Southcentral Alaska dipnet fishery and razor clam digging.

This is the first among several upcoming articles included in the new TBTI special issue on “Fisheries and Food Systems: Cross-pollinations and Synthesis”. The special issue, edited by Philip Loring, Moenieba Isaacs, and Ratana Chuenpagdee is developed through the Fish as Food cluster.
