A project of the Alaska Marine Conservation Council and Nunamta Aulukestai, Bristol Bay: A Legacy Story, chronicles the decades of work on the part of local residents and communities, tribes, seafood industry, and conservation organizations to protect fisheries and a way of life in Bristol Bay from offshore oil and gas drilling. On December 16, 2014 President Obama announced that he was withdrawing the North Aleutian Basin from the federal Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program, thus protecting Bristol Bay and the southeast Bering Sea, the region’s valuable fishing grounds, and world’s largest wild salmon run from offshore development in perpetuity.
To commemorate the tireless work of the men and women who helped protect this region’s culture and livelihood, Bristol Bay: A Legacy Story was created. This film serves not only as a thank you to all those who have devoted invaluable time and energy to this issue, including the group of organizations, businesses, and communities that came together as the The Fish Basket Coalition, but also as a reminder to future generations who may face similar challenges to their marine resources. This story commemorates the many reasons why Bristol Bay is so valuable to both our local economy and our culture.
