Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP)
This summer, UFA surveyed Alaska fishermen about their opinions on salmon habitat.
Fishermen took the survey in high numbers
Fishermen say salmon habitat is critical not just for our bottom-line but identity and way of life.

For Alaskan Commercial Fishermen, UFA’s Salmon Habitat Information Project (SHIP) is a go-to source for information on the health of salmon runs you depend on. By working together, we can become powerful advocates for pro-salmon policies and ensure commercial fishing jobs remain strong for generations.
THANK YOU for Telling Us Your Priorities!
Back in September, UFA closed the Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP) survey – and contest to earn airline tickets or fishing gear.
If you took the survey then, THANK YOU!
And big thanks to all the gear groups who encouraged their members to weigh in too.
The ideas and suggestions that fishermen shared in the survey will be extremely valuable in steering SHIP and UFA in the coming months and years.
Congratulations to These Big Winners!
Over 500 Alaskan fishermen took the survey, and over 400 connected with SHIP on Facebook to keep in touch. These winners were chosen at random:
$500 Alaska Airlines gift certificate
$200 LFS gift card
The rush of insightful comments shared by survey takers was beyond our expectations… so, in thanks, we’re also giving away UFA sweatshirts to these 5 people:
There’s More to Come
If you’d like sneak peaks into what other fishermen say about Alaska salmon habitat, how UFA will use survey results, and all the news about the salmon habitat you use, please keep in touch!
Over the fall, UFA will review survey results, digest the information, present the data to the UFA Board at its upcoming meeting, and form a plan for moving the program forward.
Thank you again for helping guide SHIP, and stay tuned for more!
