Welcome to Fishbasket.org

 

Rich, remote, wild and incredibly productive, Alaska's Bristol Bay and southeast Bering Sea are America's seafood stronghold. Our "fish basket" provides a healthy, abundant source of seafood to the nation and supports Native subsistence traditions as well as fishing families and businesses across Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. The Fish Basket Coalition is a diverse group of Native subsistence, commercial fishing, conservation and local community interests dedicated to a sustainable future for Bristol Bay and the Bering Sea, free from offshore oil and gas development. Now is the time to work together to protect our seafood stronghold, for once and for all!
