Tell Feds No Gill Nets on the Upper Kenai and Kasilof Rivers
The use of gill nets on the Upper Kenai and Kasilof Rivers was passed by the Federal Subsistence Board against the federal and state staff recommendations that opposed their use because of fishery conservation concerns. There was very little public testimony, as few people knew that the Board was going to allow gill nets on the Upper Kenai and Kasilof Rivers. Since gill nets are non-selective gear, while targeting abundant sockeye salmon, they will also incidentally harvest rainbow trout, lake trout, Dolly Varden and king salmon. Send a clear message to the Federal Subsistence Board and other interested parties today by following the link below.

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
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.
