About me

140308-Gunnar Knapp

I am a Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Alaska Anchorage Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER).  I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University in 1981, and came to Alaska to begin a career as a research economist at ISER, where I worked for 35 years until my retirement in June 2016.  For most of my career, my research focused primarily on Alaska resource management and markets, particularly on the Alaska salmon industry and world salmon markets.  From 2014-2016, I served as ISER’s Director and was actively engaged in research and public engagement related to Alaska fiscal issues.

For many years I taught UAA courses on the Economy of Alaska and the Economics of Fish.

Here is my CV as of November 2016.  Although it is mostly up-to-date, I still need to add some recent reports and articles from the past several years.
