Fish for Families 2022

Our goal is to donate Bristol Bay sockeye to Alaska Native communities suffering (sea)food insecurity and lay the foundation for a network of community fishermen, processors, regional associations, tribes, and individuals committed to building a more resilient and equitable local seafood distribution system. Salmon runs in the Yukon, Kuskokwim, and Chignik river systems indicate ongoing failure, while recording-breaking runs occur in Bristol Bay. 

For every $24 donated, a single salmon is delivered to a family in need; for every $20,000 raised, we are able to purchase, transport, and distribute 2,500 lbs. of sockeye salmon to a community. Our first 2,000 lbs of salmon have shipped to Chignik communities funded by the $60,000 we have raised already. The additional $40,000 will allow us to expand our reach to even more communities. 
 
This donation program is being coordinated by both Alaska Longline Fishermans Association and Alaska Sustainable Fisheries Trust. We would like to recognize and thank our funders and partners that have made this project possible: Northline Seafoods, North Soul Salmon, Net to table Seafoods, Multiplier Catch Together, Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association, Copper River Fish Market , Boreal Sockeye, Yukon River Drainage Fisheries Association, Deenaalee Hodgdon with BCCA, BBNC, Grant Aviation, and more!
