On average, 40 million wild salmon return to Bristol Bay Alaska each summer, supporting over 12,000 fishing-related jobs and supplying over 50% of the world’s sockeye salmon. It is one of the last intact salmon ecosystems left in the world, making it a natural treasure and important source of sustainable seafood. Foreign mining companies are currently seeking to develop a massive gold, copper and molybdenum mine, known as Pebble, in the headwaters of Bristol Bay. If developed, Pebble would be the largest open pit mine in North America and would pose adverse risks to Bristol Bay’s prime salmon habitat, abundant wildlife and local Alaska Native communities.
Join us every Wednesday in August for a special Bristol Bay Salmon Tasting menu. Enjoy three delicious courses for $45/person and help us spread awareness and support for this unique and important fishery.
