Unfortunately, due to the health concerns and governmental restrictions surrounding COVID-19 we will be unable to hold the annual Bering Sea Fisheries Conference this year.


We urge those who were planning to attend the conference to expedite flight and hotel cancellations and contact the hotel directly to cancel your room reservation.


All registration fees will be fully refunded. 


If you find you have questions please call Peter Philips at (206) 779-2746.

Often, new boats aren’t the best way to go for fishing companies. The program this year includes a discussion of conversion and retrofit projects, as well as new vessels recently delivered and on the way.

We’ll also discuss regulatory changes anticipated with the new executive and legislative administrations, and a discussion of developments in federal, state and private sector financial products to benefit the construction and/or conversions of fishing vessels fishing the North Pacific.

Join us this September for the fishing industry’s only annual forum dedicated to the Bering Sea and distant water fisheries.

Bering Sea Fisheries Conference is proudly produced by Fishermen’s News.


“Your Bering Sea Fisheries Conference has become an institution for the North Pacific fishing industry.”

Steve Johnson, Garvey Schubert Barer
