SEAFOOD DONATION PROGRAM
Since March 2020, the parent organizations of Alaskan’s Own: Alaska Longline Fishermen's Association (ALFA) and Alaska Sustainable Fisheries Trust (ASFT) have provided over 486,068 meals of seafood, free of charge, to thousands of individuals/families, including children’s programs, food pantries, women’s shelters, tribal organizations and much more.

Thank you for your support of AO and of those who are not only facing the impacts of Covid 19, but also food insecurity.
ALASKA'S FIRST COMMUNITY SUPPORTED FISHERY (CSF)
Alaskans Own (AO) gives seafood eaters the opportunity to take the health and sustainability of wild fisheries and Alaska’s coastal communities into their own hands.
AO is a non-profit program of the Alaska Longline Fishermen's Association. All profits from Alaskans Own will go directly towards supporting fishery conservation research, initiatives to keep fishing access rights local and other efforts to ensure the health and longevity of Alaskan fisheries.
Joining Alaskans Own is about a lot more than buying great fish. It’s an investment in the health of both fish and fisherman, in a cleaner environment, more vibrant local economies and a better future for Alaska.
TAKE ACTION TO SUPPORT OUR FISHERIES
Everyone benefits from strong coastal communities, healthy fisheries, and supporting our small boat fishing fleets. Along with our parent organization, the Alaska Longline Fishermen's Association, Alaskans Own works to engage & educate fishermen and the public in issues that affect our oceans and fishery resources.
There are several opportunities for fishermen and the public to take part in work and advocate for our fisheries!
