Habitat conservation and restoration to maintain and improve the Kenai River watershed for sustainable fisheries.
Each year, we allocate and leverage thousands of dollars for the protection and restoration of critical fish habitat. Success stories on the Kenai include the Fish Habitat Cost Share program and the Kenai River Center. KRSA also supports habitat projects that target responsible angler access for boat and bank angling activities.
Habitat Program
Promotion of predictable and meaningful sport and personal use fishing opportunity.
One of KRSA's major roles on behalf of its membership is to monitor and have input on fisheries management decisions. At local, state and federal regulatory levels, KRSA advocates for sustainable fisheries and the public's fishery rights. Decisions made by regulatory bodies have significant impact on all users of our fisheries resources.
Fisheries Management
Fishery, economic and conservation research to advance information for management of sustainable fisheries.
KRSA has funded regional strategic planning efforts to prioritize projects for fisheries research, habitat research and habitat restoration. We work in close cooperation with state and national regulatory bodies to secure and leverage funding for studies that help managers to make scientific-based decisions concerning the Kenai River Fishery.
Research Program
Public education, scholarships and outreach to promote stewardship of fisheries resources.
KRSA is committed to education. KRSA provides for public education, scholarships and outreach to promote stewardship of fisheries resources. Education is accomplished through a variety of KRSA programs and support for community-based education partnerships.
