JHathaway2 The National Fisherman team is gearing up for Seattle!
We are arriving on the West Coast Tuesday and hope to see many of you Wednesday at Profitable Harvest — Direct to Market Forum. It starts at 8 a.m. and includes a full day of panelists and Q&A that runs the gamut from improving your processing to marketing your catch to the public.
After that, Pacific Marine Expo begins bright and early Thursday morning and continues through Saturday at 3 p.m. Come walk the floor, check out a conference or two, compete in the Fisherman of the Year contest and stop by booth 103 to say hi.
