Introduction | Alaska Salmon | Alaska Halibut | Alaska Pollock & Cod
Alaska is fish country. For thousands of years, the fishes of Alaskas seas and rivers have supported human use, from fisheries used by Alaskas indigenous Native peoples since prehistoric times, to todays modern seafood industry. Alaska is home to abundant stocks of many species of fish, and offers some of the cleanest marine, freshwater, and upland habitats in the world. Effective state and federal institutions manage fisheries that are productive and sustainable, clean and healthy. Alaska is the only State in the nation whose Constitution explicitly mandates that all fish, including salmon, shall be utilized, developed, and maintained on the sustained yield principle. Here are some examples of Alaskas unique fisheries management and pristine environment.
