Alaska's Sea Grant program has a long history of supporting the business needs of the state's fishermen.

In keeping with that tradition, the program has published a new boilerplate crew contract that includes covid-19 addenda as required by the state of Alaska's health mandates.

The contract addresses quarantine stipulations, face masks, reporting symptoms, contact tracing, and medical expenses in the case of any injury or illness, including covid-19.
