John Sackton’s presentation to
SWAMC March meeting
“Alaska Bering Sea Fisheries in the Global Economy”
Wild Alaska Salmon are part of the cultural fabric of our state. They are woven into our past, our present and our future. The Alaska Salmon Alliance is an organization focused on public education, promoting the value of scientifically based salmon management to preserve habitats and create predictable harvests for all salmon users in the Cook Inlet region. The Alaska Salmon Alliance promotes long-term sustainability and is a source for accurate information about the salmon industry. We advocate for a thoughtful, process-oriented allocation of Cook Inlet salmon for the benefit of all Alaskans.
The Alaska Salmon Alliance advocates for and promotes science-based salmon policies that will result in long term economic opportunities and benefits for Alaska coastal communities for future generations. To this end, the ASA endeavors to develop positive working relationships with the Alaska Board of Fisheries, the Alaska Legislature, Kenai Peninsula Borough, the Anchorage Assembly and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, and residents of the Southcentral region. The ASA also collaborates with other organizations to protect and enhance the salmon resources of the region and to insure the future of the Alaska salmon industry.
ASA is available to make presentations to public and commercial organizations about the Alaska Salmon Alliance and the positive benefits of the commercial fishing and seafood industry of Southcentral Alaska. Click below to download our printable brochure!
