Overview
Salmon supports a substantial part of Alaska’s economy, helps maintain subsistence fishing rights, and provides recreational fishing opportunities. The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State program seeks to secure state and federal policies in Alaska to protect the most important salmon spawning watersheds in the state necessary to support the state’s economy and the rights of Native Alaskans. The program will defend Bristol Bay and other key salmon habitat by engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public. These efforts will elevate a narrative about the shared value of salmon to Alaskans.
