Threatened by a massive open-pit mine, the pristine Bristol Bay Rivers in Alaska were #2 on the list of America’s Most Endangered Rivers® of 2011. The battle has continued in this region that is host to one of the last great salmon fisheries on earth. We must protect this national treasure and its salmon fishery, incredible sport fishing and recreation economy, and native way of life that’s thousands of years old from the specter of the Pebble Mine.
Bristol Bay’s wild salmon fishery and other natural resources provide at least 14,000 full and part-time jobs and are valued at about $480 million annually. The average annual run of sockeye salmon is about 37.5 million fish— 46% of the global sockeye, half of which come directly from Bristol Bay drainages.
