The NSEDC EET Program also works to connect residents to employment opportunities with many of our industry partners, including Glacier Fish Company and Siku Holdings. Glacier Fish Company employs successful trainees who are certified from AVTEC in Seward, as well as residents who have successfully worked in NSSP seafood plants. Glacier Fish Company harvests pollock and groundfish in the Bering Sea with the Alaska Ocean and Northern Glacier. A significant portion of NSEDC’s crab holdings are harvested by Siku Holdings, which includes the vessels Aleutian No. 1 and Patricia Lee.
NSEDC also works to connect residents with opportunities at land-based seafood plants in places like Dutch Harbor.
Community Employment Program
Every summer, NSEDC provides funding to municipalities and tribal organizations to hire individuals seeking education beyond high school. The Community Employment Program benefits the community organizations, along with the students returning home for summer employment.
