            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.

            He may be something of a fish-out-of-water at the tradeshow but Nathan Mudd of Alaska Beef thinks his family's products are a perfect fit.

their commitment to the environment, participation in community and village events, awareness of climate change impacts, and green business practices. Business owners are also selected to participate in a personal interview and consultation with an AGA Board member.

AGA was launched in 2008 through the Alaska Wilderness Recreation and Tourism Association; a nonprofit trade organization for ecotourism businesses in Alaska.

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.

Adventure Green Alaska program benefits include recognition on the program website:

            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.

            Toby Sullivan, executive director of the Kodiak Maritime Museum, is the organizer. He agreed that this is not your stereotypical poetry recital.

            Kodiak was part of earth science history last week.... Well, it was within sight of the history being made, anyway. An unmanned aircraft flying at over 60,000 feet flew across the North Pacific Ocean from California and turned around just south of the island on Wednesday. The drone was a Global Hawk U-A-S, or "unmanned aerial system," owned by NASA. The mission it flew was in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
