About Us

For decades this movement has been defined by a diverse and committed community. The work begins in Bristol Bay with Tribal leadership and local communities, joined by commercial fishermen, sportsmen, national nonprofits, and businesses. This effort has been supported by tens of thousands of Alaskans and millions of Americans, who have shown up time and time again to speak up about the importance of protecting this critical fishery and all it means to Alaska’s communities, economies, and ways of life.



Bristol Bay Forever is an initiative sponsored by the Bristol Bay Defense Fund – a coalition of business, Tribal, nonprofit, and community organizations dedicated to securing lasting protections for Bristol Bay.
