Commercial Fishing: Gulf of Alaska It's not an easy life, but it's a good life! Suppose you decide to take the summer off and sign on as a deck hand for a commercial fishing boat in Alaska that specializes in deepwater fishing for groundfish. What kind of fish can you expect to catch? One way to answer this question is to examine government reports on groundfish caught in the Gulf of Alaska. The following list indicates the types of fish caught annually in thousands of metric tons (Source: Report on the Status of U.S. Living Marine Resources, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration): flatfish, 36.3; Pacific cod, 68.6; sablefish, 16.0; walleye pollock. 71.2; rockfish, 18. 9. Make a Pareto Chart showing the annual harvest for commercial fishing in the Gulf of Alaska.
