Fishing and Boating - Way of Life

Posted in:

Take a quick ride along Alaska’s Kuskokwim River in the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge with Chris Tulik, one of our Refuge Information Technicians. Out here, fishing and boating are a way of life, and employees like Chris travel hundreds of miles along the river each year to work hand in hand with local communities to conserve wild Alaska salmon that so many depend on.

Deep in the heart of the Great Land lies the Chena River. This river is home to the second-largest run of Yukon River king salmon in Alaska yet it flows through one of the most populated cities in the state. This film celebrates the progress the community is making to conserve, restore and protect king salmon and the Chena River for themselves and future generations.
