Arctic Yukon Kuskokwim Sustainable Salmon Initiative



In response to salmon declines, Bering Sea Fishermen’s Association and regional Native organizations joined with state and federal agencies to create the AYK SSI, a proactive science-based program working cooperatively to identify and address the critical salmon research needs facing this region.

AYK SSI is the largest example of co-management of research funding addressing salmon within the Pacific Rim. AYK SSI is one of the largest, most successful programs of its kind in North America.
