Kwik'pak Fisheries

Kwik'pak Fisheries is a community-based business. We are working to build the regional economy by offering employment, training, and educational opportunities to area residents and their families. In addition to work tied directly to our fishing and buying operations, Kwik'pak has helped other small businesses in the villages along the river.

Subsistence fishing has been the mainstay of the Yupik people for generations. Today, income derived from commercial fishing helps them to preserve their long-standing traditions. Before each commercial season begins, Yupik families travel to "fish camps" to catch, dry, and store the fish that will sustain them through the winter.
