Stand for Salmon Action

Stand for Salmon Action

More about this campaign

Alaska’s tens of thousands of undeveloped rivers, lakes, and streams make it the greatest salmon stronghold left in North America. Salmon drive a $2 billion commercial fishing economy statewide; they are the heart of thriving sport fisheries; and they are the foundation of a traditional way of life for tens of thousands of Alaska Natives. But the state also depends heavily on natural resource extraction for economic growth.

Stand for Salmon ballot initiative would bring these outdated laws into the 21st Century by creating a more transparent, responsible and balanced approach to large-scale development projects. This will ensure major projects don’t destroy salmon habitat, as Alaska continues to grow and develop.

Wild Salmon Center staff in Alaska are working with Stand for Salmon to improve habitat protection for Alaska’s wild salmon.

Paid for by Wild Salmon Center Political Activities Fund, Portland Oregon. Top Three Donors: Guido Rahr, Portland, OR, David Finkel, Portland, OR, Ken Morrish, Ashland, OR.
