Fishermen’s group kicks off information program

The United Fishermen of Alaska kicked off their Salmon Habitat Information Program (SHIP) this week by opening an online opinion survey for commercial fishermen and their families. UFA hopes the SHIP program will be a “valuable resource for info about the health of salmon habitat,” UFA board member and program manager Lindsay Bloom stated in a press release.

UFA “invite(s) all Alaska fishermen or family members to steep the SHIP project by taking a short survey on what’s important about salmon habitat,” Bloom said. “UFA wants to recognize the wisdom and knowledge fishermen have about their fishing grounds.”

Survey participants will be entered in a drawing for 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.

Surveys, which close Labor Day, can be found at

By 1914 when this photo was taken, Juneau had developed into an established city. The Victorian era turreted Alaska Steam Laundry (built 1901) is seen on the left, while other buildings such as the Alaskan Hotel and Central Rooming House are on the right. The rooming house was reconstructed in the 1980s. It is now the Senate Mall. (Alaska State Library-P31-021).
