Read through the Alaska Fly-Fishing Expedition case below and 1. Brainstorm potential risks associated with this project. Try to come up with at least five different risks. 2. Use a risk assessment form similar to Figure 7.6 to analyze identified risks.(can see the one on example paper) 3. Develop a risk response matrix similar to Figure 7.8 to outline how you would deal with each of the risks(can see the one on example paper).
post must be 550-word thread in response to the prompt provided. You will support your assertions with at least 3 peer-reviewed sources that have been published in the last 3 years. You may use some of the same risks on example paper but not all. Please make sure to paraphrase and site correctly.
Alaska Fly-Fishing Expedition*
You are sitting around the fire at a lodge in Dillingham, Alaska, discussing a fishing expedition you are planning with your colleagues at Great Alaska Adventures (GAA). Earlier in the day you received a fax from the president of BlueNote, Inc. The president wants to reward her top management team by taking them on an all-expense-paid fly-fishing adventure in Alaska. She would like GAA to organize and lead the expedition. You have just finished a preliminary scope statement for the project (see below). You are now brainstorming potential risks associated with the project.

Alaska Fly-Fishing Expedition: Case Study
Question 1. Brainstorm potential risks associated with this project. Try to come up with at least five different risks.
Navigation requirements during expedition:
E.g. There is a possibility that vessel get lost due to bad weather and sea conditions
They should carry some technical equipment for communication and check the weather conditions such as satellite phone with a GPS system and direction equipment. Also do a research on weather conditions before the expedition start. Need to take safety equipment on board with them such as life jackets, rain gear. Crew member should follow the emergency procedures on the vessel through the posters or handouts.
E.g. People may be sick due to travel or maybe get poisoned with plant or fish or due to excitement of the journey people get hurt themselves.
The people should undergo with the medical test before they start the journey and keep a health record for past and present of all individuals crew member on board the vessel. Medical professional should carry with on the vessel through entire journey. They need to carry the necessary medical equipment on board such as first aid kit. Crew member have to fill out a medical form which gives a medical professional a right direction to do a treatment if something happened.
E.g. crew member should keep enough fuel on board, due to having a miscalculation of the amount of fuel needed.
Carry extra storage for fuel and back up fuel. One of the crew members takes a responsibility to check the fuel regulators which indicates the level of fuel. There should be visible availability of emergency firefighting equipment such as fire extinguishers.
Risk 4 and 5
Delayed permit approval and government policies and laws
E.g. crew member doesn’t have a permit to do fishing and no permission some restricted area, causing a big fine imposed.
Before journey start, one of the crew members should take a responsibility to get the permission from the government to do travel and fishing which avoids major delays. The Government has some restricted area for general public if the crew members apply for the approval then they will enjoy a lot and may be the government will provide a guide who knows this area very well. By doing this the government have all the information regarding the journey. In result of that the government people get in touch with them in frequent time.
