1% For the Wild
Giving Back: A Core Part of Our Business
What is 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 fishery conservation, habitat protection, and efforts to strengthen local communities and food systems.
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.
