Riley Smith

Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation
Development Director
Since its creation in 1978, the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation (AFDF) has been dedicated to identifying opportunities common to the Alaska seafood industry and developing efficient, sustainable outcomes that provide benefits to the economy, environment, and communities. In 2014, AFDF began spearheading the Alaska Mariculture Initiative – a strategy to accelerate the development of mariculture in Alaska. Smith graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies, Environmental Science and Resource Management. At AFDF, Smith works on research related to social responsibility, environmental sustainability certification, mariculture, outreach and communications, grant procurement, and grant management. Smith works closely with the Mariculture Task Force on the implementation of the Alaska Mariculture Development Plan, with a goal to grow a $100 million industry in 20 years.
