About Kwik’Pak Fisheries

Kwik'Pak Fisheries LLC., established by Yukon Delta Fisheries Development Association in 2001, ensures a fair commercial market to the Lower Yukon River regional fishermen it supports.

In addition, Kwik’Pak Fisheries’ responsible development of fur and timber resources and the establishment of the Fisherman’s Store enables regional residents to prosper economically while remaining true to their culture and environment.

The ancient dynamics between the Yupik people and their home are the foundation for Kwik’Pak Fisheries and the livelihood of those who fish its waters.
