Alaska’s largest employer continues to add more jobs to its roster. The number of commercial fishing jobs grew last year to a level not seen since 2000, according to the Alaska Department of Labor. Driven primarily by an increased salmon harvest, notably from the record run of pinks, fishing jobs grew by nearly 2.5 percent last year. That brought the annual monthly average to 8,400 jobs, just 400 shy of the record a decade ago.
