In response to salmon declines in the late 1990s, regional organizations joined with state and federal agencies to form a partnership to cooperatively address salmon research and restoration needs. This partnership includes the Association of Village Council Presidents, the Tanana Chiefs Conference, Kawerak, Inc., the Bering Sea Fishermen’s Association, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, plus additional Native, governmental, and nongovernmental (NGO) ex-officio partner institutions.
