            There's probably only one booth selling beef products at ComFish this week. That would be Alaska Beef from Sitkinak. The story of Alaska Beef is as unusual as, say, hawking steak at a fish show.

In its initial year, AGA awarded Alaska tourism sustainable business certification to nine businesses. AGA is already planning a third certification process beginning today (Thursday). Business will have until June 30 to submit the AGA application.

            It's ComFish time again. This weekend the fisheries tradeshow takes place at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center. The ComFish forums will take place at the Kodiak Island Best Western. This year's locations are a far cry from the borrowed National Guard Tent that housed the very first ComFish.

Alaska's largest and longest running fisheries trade show has moved from place to place and from date to date over the 28 years of its existence.

The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce started the event in 1980. Chamber executive director Deb King says she's very pleased with both the date and the venue for this year's event. She explained that planning for ComFish 2010 started six months ago.
