Eat a salmon for Bristol Bay

Bristol Bay, Alaska … the center of the earth for wild sockeye salmon. It’s also focus of our battle against the proposed Pebble Mine, which would create North America’s largest open-pit gold and copper mine next to some of the most important salmon rivers left on earth.

Bristol Bay continues to produce one of the most prolific sockeye salmon runs in the world, returning over 63 million sockeye last summer alone. The fishery there supports over 14,000 jobs including commercial fishermen, processors, lodge owners, guides, tourism operators and more. It supports TU Business members Steve and Jenn Kurian and their family.

They’re also the owners of Wild for Salmon and Pride of Bristol Bay, companies founded on the principle that delicious, sustainably-harvested wild salmon could help people around the country know what makes Bristol Bay so special. They also donate 1 percent of all sales to fund TU’s conservation work to protect Bristol Bay.

To order your fresh-frozen Bristol Bay sockeye, just go to www.prideofbristolbay or www.wildforsalmon and enter TROUT10 at checkout. You’ll get 10 percent off your order of great salmon, and you’ll be supporting our great work in Bristol Bay.
