The Partnership

Set in a dramatic, remote, and wild landscape, Southwest Alaska’s pure and intact freshwaters teem with millions of wild salmon, trout, and char. The abundance of fish over such a grand area is unrivaled, with salmon forming the basis of the region’s ecology, economy, culture, and way of life. This region is maybe best known for boasting the most productive and resilient wild sockeye salmon fishery in the world, producing over half of the entire world supply.

Mission: to protect, conserve, and, if necessary, restore watersheds that sustain wild salmon populations and the fisheries of Southwest Alaska.

Vision: continuation of the world’s largest populations of salmon that perpetually sustain the culturally and ecologically important, economically valuable, and unique landscape of Southwest Alaska.

The Partnership directs its efforts to habitat protection throughout Southwest Alaska, including the Alaska Peninsula, all Bristol Bay watersheds and the watersheds flowing into the Kuskokwim River from the south and east up to and including the Aniak River, an area of 39.8 million acres.
