Dutch Harbor Facility
Pacific Groundfish Observer Program maintains a field office in
Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The office is rented through the General Services
Administration in a private building which also contains offices for NMFS
Enforcement, the Sustainable Fisheries Division of the NMFS
Alaska Regional Office, the U.S.
Coast Guard, and the Alaska
Department of Fish and Game. The Observer Program office is staffed
by one individual.
Support staff are sent to Dutch Harbor from Anchorage or Seattle when
there is high activity in the Bering Sea fisheries.
