Every year millions of Canadian-bound salmon are caught and killed in Alaska's commercial fisheries. Meanwhile fisheries in B.C. have been shut down to conserve our depleted salmon runs.
Alaska's interception fisheries near the B.C. border represent a small fraction of their total catch, but are having a devastating impact on B.C. These fisheries only exist to catch large numbers of Canadian salmon in Alaskan waters.
Wild salmon face enough pressures. Alaska needs to move its dirty interception fisheries away from areas where B.C. salmon are returning to spawn to inside waters where Alaskans can still catch their own fish.
Tell our fisheries minister that it’s time to stand up for B.C. salmon. Please send your letter today!
