Alaska's summer fisheries are fast approaching.

Although this season is loaded with uncertainty, there are a few things that are given: the salmon are on their way home to Alaska’s cold, clean, free-flowing watersheds, and the tide waits for nobody.

If you're an Alaska fisherman and covid-19-related, pre-season fishing dreams and anxieties have begun to take over your sleeping and waking hours, then SalmonState wants to hear from you.

Please take this quick survey to help ensure that the perspectives of Alaskan fishermen are accounted for in the important decisions and adaptations to come. As small business owners and food producers, it is vitally important that your voices are heard.

Hundreds of Alaska fishermen have submitted their surveys. Join them by giving voice to your needs for the summer season.
