More about Alaska Marine Conservation Council:


Formed in 1994, AMCC’s mission is to protect the integrity of Alaska’s marine ecosystems and promote the health of ocean-dependent coastal communities. Through education, outreach, fisheries policy advocacy and market-based approaches, we work with hundreds of dedicated members, partners and allies to minimize the negative impacts of Alaska’s industrial-scale seafood industry and climate change and to bolster the positive impacts of small-scale fisheries on marine biodiversity, fishery-dependent communities and local economies.
