Alaska Marine Conservation Council
Viable policy solutions are at the core of AMCC’s approach. AMCC plays both leading and supporting roles in advancing policy and management solutions for healthy Gsheries and marine ecosystems in the North PaciGc through federal and state processes. Among other leading issues, foundational goals include reducing bycatch, protecting habitat, bolstering diverse Gsheries access for community-based Gshermen, supporting low impact harvest methods, and prioritizing science-based management. Ocean- dependent community members have a crucial role in advancing these conservation goals in the policy arena, which AMCC supports through ongoing education and engagement.
