National Fisherman

Every year, the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA) funds or co-funds a variety of projects that benefit the Bristol Bay salmon fishery and advance one or more of our strategic objectives.
 
The board is soliciting two kinds of submissions for the 2014 cycle, Project Proposals and Project Concepts.

Project Proposals are generally submitted by permit-holders, municipalities, non-governmental organizations, private companies, research institutions or state and local agencies that are in a position to carry out the project they are proposing.  

Project Concepts are submitted by BBRSDA members (S03T permit-holders). They are ideas for projects that the board might consider funding. Project Concepts allow the board to gather a broad range of ideas from members who may not themselves be in a position to carry them forward. 

This year, the deadline for submissions is December 16th.
