Norton Sound red king crab was available this December through AMCC’s Catch of the Season program, a community supported fishery (CSF) that supports our work and mission.

Norton Sound Crab: Not Your Average Crustacean

Not only does Norton Sound red king crab melt in your mouth, but Norton Sound Seafood Products is a company that supports a better living for local small boat fishermen. AMCC is proud to collaborate with Norton Sound Seafood Products and its parent company, Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation, a unique Community Development Quota (CDQ) company “charged with improving the economies and living conditions in the Norton Sound region,” which largely means serving local fishermen with strong and stable markets for their catch, helpful resources, scholarships, training, infrastructure development, small business support, youth programs, grants, and a number of other initiatives throughout the Norton Sound region. By purchasing red king crab through AMCC’s Catch of the Season program, you are supporting both Norton Sound fishermen and the wonderful work that this company is doing in its community, as well as supporting the mission and statewide work of the Alaska Marine Conservation Council.
