Giving Back: A Core Part of Our Business 

1% For the Wild

What is it? 

Since our founding, Sitka Salmon Shares donates 1% of our company’s revenue every year to fishery conservation, habitat protection, and efforts to strengthen local communities and food systems. 

Why we created 1% For the Wild 

At Sitka Salmon Shares, we know that our company depends on the health of Alaska’s wild fisheries, marine ecosystems, and fishing communities. That’s why each year Sitka Salmon Shares returns 1% of the company’s gross revenue (that’s revenue—not profits!) back to these causes.

This commitment stems from our company’s broader goal to build a values-based seafood movement in the United States. When you subscribe to Sitka Salmon Shares you are supporting causes that work to enhance the social, ecological, and cultural fabric of our coastal communities. 

Causes we support:

  • Fishery conservation and habitat protection efforts in Alaska with a focus on the major threats of climate change and ocean acidification. 
  • Promoting sustainability, well-being, and resilience in coastal communities. 
  • Ensuring the vitality of small-scale fishing fleets and building a values-based seafood movement in the United States.
