Our Partners

June 07, 2014

When we started Salmon Sisters, one of the keystones to our vision was that we would be able to give back to organizations and causes that were important to us.  We've felt lucky to find such well-run organizations working towards promoting sustainable fisheries and healthy oceans in Alaska, and we've began two wonderful partnerships based on our mutually shared goal for a healthier ocean. We give a percentage of our monthly sales to AMCC and the Great Land Trust. We made friends with the ladies at AMCC (Alaska Marine Conservation Council) this year at Fish Expo in Seattle. We shared a booth and sold the AK Marine Hoodies we made for the event. They were a big hit! And have continued to be, since their creation. AMCC works towards conservation solutions that address the interdependence between healthy marine ecosystems, vibrant local economies and rich coast traditions. What we love best about this organization is their creativity, their grassroots advocacy, their community outreach and their educational efforts. We're making new Wild Alaskan Seafood tote bags for AMCC this week for their booth at summer farmers markets in Anchorage. Once upon a time, our dad was one of AMCC's founding members, and we're glad we've been able to keep our family's connection to the organization alive. Good people.

The organization has conserved over 40 miles of salmon spawning and rearing habitat and works closely with the folks in Homer at the KHLT (Kachemak Heritage Land Trust). The Great Land Trust's work reaches communities from the Mat-su Valley to Prince William Sound and Kodiak. We brainstormed up a new Salmon Dreams Hoodie together, dedicated to wild salmon conservation and the health of Alaska's waterways which makes a future for wild salmon possible. salmon streamsdreams    "Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul."                                                               - Edward Abbey

Everyday we learn from new people who inspires us to be better fishermen and create more beautiful things. Enjoy the following stories from a few of the Alaskan fishermen and makers we've learned from.
