Smoking Fish for Fun and Profit is back by popular demand. Scheduled for September 4–6, 2013, the Kodiak workshop is for anyone interested in smoking and salting fish, including home fish-smoking enthusiasts, small smokehouse operators, fishermen who want to direct market fish, and commercial operators.
The workshop offers lectures and hands-on activities led by Alexandra Oliveira, University of Alaska Fairbanks seafood scientist at the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center. Faculty members Brian Himelbloom and Brennan Smith, and Sun'aq Tribal Enterprises CEO Chris Sannito, will also teach at the workshop.
Topics are the principles of fish smoking, safety of smoked products, preparation of fish sausage, salting and drying, brining, filleting sockeye for curing and cold smoking, and hot-smoking chum, coho, and black cod.
