Maritime Negligence in Kodiak, Alaska

Kodiak Island is a large Alaskan Island located off of the State’s southern coast in the Gulf of Alaska. It is separated from Alaska by the Shelikof Strait. Kodiak is one of seven communities that were settled on the island. The other towns include Akhiok, Karluk, Port Lions, and Ousinkie.

Kodiak Island’s maritime history spans back centuries. The Island’s ports are very active, and it is one of the United States’ top three fishing ports. Over 700 fishing vessels call the Port of Kodiak home and it serves as the largest Coast Guard Station in the U.S.

The Island’s maritime industry is comprised primarily of commercial fishing and vessel maintenance and repair. Many shoreside jobs support the fishing industry, supplying gear and equipment.
