Alaska Independent Fishermen's Marketing Association is Bristol Bay's oldest and largest commercial fishermen's organization. AIFMA works tirelessly on its mission: to protect the renewable salmon resource and promote economic sustainability for commercial salmon permit holders in Bristol Bay.
The AIFMA Board of Directors is thrilled with Bristol Bay Native Corp.'s recent resolution of commitment to the protection and responsible care of resources in the Bristol Bay region. Like BBNC, AIFMA supports sustainable economic development and commends the BBNC board for taking the precautionary approach when it comes to irreversible, large-scale, nonrenewable resource development in the heart of the Bristol Bay watershed.
We want Alaskans to know that AIFMA stands by BBNC on making this important step in protecting the viability of our robust commercial fishery for many generations to come.
AIFMA board president
