April 21, 2006

London - Alaska Governor Frank H. Murkowski and a group of Alaska trade, fishery and tourism representatives hosted a media lunch and reception Wednesday at London's renowned Nobu restaurant. The governor also participated in a 'Discover Alaska' reception later that day.

The Nobu event was well attended by a wide range of guests, including over 30 members of the consumer and food press. At the luncheon, Alaska seafood menu items included halibut, black cod, crab and salmon.

The governor's 'Discover Alaska' reception attracted over 120 invited guests covering a wide range of interests, including seafood, oil, mining, tourism and other business sectors. Guests sampled a range of Alaska seafood throughout the evening.

"It is gratifying it is for us to showcase Alaska seafood as a wild, natural, sustainable premium quality product to such large and enthusiastic audiences," said Murkowski. "Our fantastic range of seafood products is increasingly available on a year round basis at many major retail outlets in the UK."

"We recognize the increasing commitment by both UK businesses and consumers to Alaska's unique commercial and consumer products," said Margy Johnson, the state director of the Office of International Trade. "The UK has long been a solid trading partner for us and we are pleased to see the continued expansion of Alaska products in this key market."
