World's greatest sockeye salmon fishery is at risk
Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed supports the world’s largest remaining wild salmon fishery. Year after year, the salmon return to Bristol Bay in astounding numbers, like no other place on earth.
The Pebble Mine is a threat to salmon
A massive gold and copper mine - the Pebble Mine - is proposed for development at the headwaters of Bristol Bay. The mine is projected to be the largest in North America, generating as much as 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste and destroying salmon habitat.
I urge the EPA to protect the world’s greatest wild salmon fishery from the Pebble Mine’s toxic mine waste. The Bristol Bay salmon fishery is an internationally significant resource, and the lifeblood of the region.

The award-winning documentary, Red Gold, follows the world's largest run of sockeye salmon from Alaska's Bristol Bay to their natal spawning grounds. The film weaves in the extraordinary stories of the Alaska Native people and commercial fishermen whose lives and traditions the salmon sustain. The proposed Pebble mine, a massive gold-copper-molybdenum deposit, now threatens to devastate those pristine spawning grounds.
