In the summer of 2005, a group of Bristol Bay fishermen applied to the State of Alaska to establish a Regional Seafood Development Association, or RSDA. Following a review, the state approved that application and your RSDA was launched.
BB-RSDA is the only organization specifically mandated to:
advance the quality and market-success of your catch;
address fishery-related infrastructure requirements in the Bristol Bay region; and
create research and education programs to ensure long-term success of the world's greatest salmon fishery.
In carrying out this mission, we are confident we can increase fish values and the size of settlement checks. But like any stakeholder organization, we're only as good as our members.
