About Us

SalmonState, a new initiative housed at the New Venture Fund, works to protect salmon habitat and promote policies that will guarantee Alaska remains the SalmonState: the home of the world's largest, healthiest and most abundant wild salmon resource, which provides culture, food, income, employment and recreation to Alaskans, Americans and the rest of the world. We will achieve these goals by creating a deep, wide and powerful stream of support for actions and policies that put fish first. We do this through the utilization of traditional grassroots and state-of-the-art, data-driven organizing, a wide range of messaging and communications approaches, and sophisticated decision-maker relations work, as well as by building durable relationships with those who care about wild salmon (which, according to polling and focus group work, means just about everyone in Alaska).
