Alaskans Own is a non-profit, community supported fishery program. By participating in Alaskans Own, you are taking the health of wild fisheries and Alaska’s coastal communities into your own hands.
How does it work?
You pay up front for a share. For every month of the fishing season you receive a mix of seasonal, responsibly-caught Alaskan fish. Your money supports community fishermen, conservation research and fisheries advocacy to make sure we all have fish for generations to come.
who we are
Alaskans Own is part of the Alaska Longline Fishermen's Association (ALFA): an alliance of over 150 small-boat fishing families who are committed to fighting for good fisheries policy and research supporting resource conservation.
what we do
Less than 1 percent of the fish caught in Alaska stays there. We're striving to change that by reconnecting the dots of the seafood supply chain, while pursuing innovative solutions to the problems facing local fishermen.
All six of our wild Alaskan species are individually landed by troll and longline fishermen. These gear types have some of the lowest impacts on the ocean environment, and produce some of the highest quality fish out there.
