Increased competition in world markets has also driven prices to new lows.

Residents participate in at least 27 different fisheries not including the numerous groundfish fisheries, which are lumped together in a single category by the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission .

Kodiak is consistently one of the top fishing ports in the United States both in terms of quantity and value
