Set in the Heart of Bristol Bay...

The Bristol Bay Fish Expo trade show event brings the community and seafood industry together to gear up, conduct business and talk fish. Bristol Bay's commercial salmon fishery has been going strong for over 130 years. This incredible natural resource has provided food, jobs and a way of life for generations. As we gear up to harvest and process, we're also getting informed on sustainability because the future of wild salmon is in our hands.

Our Rich History...

In 2018 the 2nd Annual Bristol Bay Fish Expo will highlight the rich history that has sustained our vital industry and provide the venue for developing a dynamic future. As a result the theme of the 2018 fundraising event is Celebrating Our Past | Sustaining Our Future.

Historian Katherine Ringsmuth PHD will be our featured Keynote speaker and will be hosting MugUp throughout the Bristol Bay Fish Expo Event. Her ongoing work to preserve the rich history of Bristol Bay is now focused on the <NN> Cannery History Project. This dynamic project is a platform that intersects education, preservation, and interpretation with community engagement.

The <NN> Cannery Project is intended to inspire, benefit and remember the voice of the people. We aim to preserve and share the narratives of the corporate owners, cannery workers, local residents, and fishermen, whose activities are reflected by and embedded in the industrial landscape contained within the historic <NN> Cannery property at South Naknek.
