Help Protect Lower Cook Inlet

In July 2022, the Department of Interior announced that a national five-year offshore drilling program was open for public comment through October 6. Despite public opposition and a lack of industry interest, the proposed program included the previously canceled oil and gas Lease Sale 258 in lower Cook Inlet. 

 

AMCC is working diligently with a national coalition to protect this area, which is vital to fisheries from Cook Inlet to Kodiak and beyond. 

 

Please join us in saying NO to oil and gas development in lower Cook Inlet and YES to permanent protections!

Help Protect Bristol Bay Red King Crab 

In October 2022, the State of Alaska closed the Bristol Bay Red King Crab season for a second year because the population continues to decline at an alarming rate despite efforts to rebuild it. 

 

AMCC believes rebuilding plans will continue to fail if they don’t acknowledge the damage to Red King Crab habitat caused by pelagic (mid-water) trawl gear.

 

Join us in asking the National Marine Fisheries Service to take emergency action and close the Red King Crab Savings Area to pelagic trawl gear to prevent long-term damage to crab and their habitat and to help them recover.
