United Fishermen of Alaska (UFA) is launching a new Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP) to connect Alaska commercial fishermen with useful and timely news about the health of the salmon runs that sustain the industry.
UFA is kicking off SHIP with an opinion survey with hefty prizes for commercial fishermen. Each Alaska commercial fisherman or family member completing the survey is entered to win a $500 Alaska Airlines or $200 LFS gift card. Additional entries will be given to people who ‘like’ the SHIP Facebook page and share the survey socially.
“UFA hopes the Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP) will be a valuable resource for info about the health of salmon habitat that fishermen depend on. We believe that, working together, fishermen can be powerful advocates for pro-salmon policies that ensure commercial fishing jobs remain strong for generations to come,” said Lindsey Bloom, UFA’s Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP) Manager.
“I want to invite all Alaska fishermen to steer the SHIP project by taking a short survey on what’s important about salmon habitat,” said Bloom. “That way, commercial fishermen can ensure the information SHIP shares is useful and relevant.”
Fishermen can take the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/UFAhabitat.
The Salmon Habitat Information Program Survey closes Labor Day.
