Sustainability Notes

In Alaska, sockeye salmon populations are generally healthy, and fisheries only target healthy stocks. Scientists actively monitor these populations and fisheries, and managers adjust regulations for these fisheries every year and often in-season as well, according to changes in salmon abundance and other conservation considerations.
