Invest in AMCC

AMCC was founded in 1994 with its members’ livelihoods in mind. Today, this is still how AMCC operates; working to improve sustainable fishing practices and policies, promote thriving coastal communities, and protect marine habitats. AMCC’s members are the backbone of our organization. They not only support our work financially, but many of them are involved in various ways from volunteering to submitting public comments. This work simply would not be possible without the financial support of individuals and businesses like you.

 

Ocean Guardians

AMCC’s work is made possible thanks to the support of many hardworking and caring individuals, businesses and foundations who share with us a concern for the health of our oceans and wild fisheries and the ways of life they sustain.

Catch 49 provides Alaskans with delicious, high-quality, healthful wild seafood, responsibly-harvested by Alaska's small-boat fishermen, and delivered to areas stretching from Homer to Fairbanks. From dock-to-dish, we strive to have your catch impeccably processed and handled by independent, family-run processors that help keep our local economies strong.  

 

Catch 49 gives seafood lovers the opportunity to make a direct impact on keeping our vibrant fisheries healthy, our coastal communities resilient, and fishermen's livelihoods sustainable.  By supporting our direct to the consumer model of food delivery, Alaskans can keep our economy, fisheries, and communities thriving.

 

Our selections are tailored to Alaskans' big appetite for seafood: we sell larger volumes of custom-processed seafood that is frozen, vacuum-sealed, and ready for your freezer, all the while helping stewardship-minded fishermen get a better price for their catch. Profits are invested in Alaska Marine Conservation Council's efforts to ensure our fisheries remain healthy for generations to come, and that small boat, independent, local fishermen retain access to our fisheries.

TAKE ACTION

Critical fisheries management decisions are made at state and federal meetings including the Alaska Board of Fisheries and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council meetings. These processes are open to the public, and hearing from local residents and resource users is very important to decision-makers.
