I am one of Bristol Bay's thankful commercial fishermen who caught nearly 30 million valuable red salmon this year to provide food for many people throughout the world. The price for Bristol Bay reds increased in value this year, igniting jobs and over $170 million to Alaska's and America's economy. This year farmed salmon in Chile was infested with a parasite. Let's protect the world's last great wild healthy salmon source, and not risk it with a 40-year-Pebble-Mine that will bulldoze their clean water spawning habitat and replace it with toxic waste forever. Enjoy Bristol Bay's heart-helping 'superfood' as my ancestors have for thousands of years. Join the many Alaskans and Americans who enjoy and care about Bristol Bay!
