Opening Virtual Doors
The Alaska Seafood Online Marketplace replaces ASMI’s “Providers Directory” as an electronic registry to help wholesalers, shippers, and merchants—alongside home gourmet specialists and small cafés—to find Alaska fish providers at the click of a button.
A statement from ASMI says, “As the quantity of fish buys occurring on the web keeps on developing, the new Marketplace gives open doors to all Alaska fish organizations to feature their items to fish buyers of different kinds.”
The website at suppliers.alaskaseafood.org has three main zones. “Explore the Marketplace” currently lists thirty-nine suppliers, with links to profile pages. “Home Cooks” displays a similar list, limited to nineteen suppliers that offer direct sales. And “Industry Buyers” is a registry for importers, wholesalers, and distributors.
ASMI says the Marketplace permits any Alaska fish business to advance its items through a more vigorous web catalog where customers can look by the item wanted, organization name, and different models.
