Linda Behnken and Natalie Sattler with the Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association discuss how the organization’s partnership network has allowed over half-a-million seafood meals to be distributed from the Columbia River to Western Alaska. This year, a subsistence donation program organized in Dillingham has sent 5,000 pounds of sockeye upriver to families of the Yukon and Chignik areas.
