The Trump Administration's EPA is now seeking public input on its decision to reverse its 2014 Proposed Determination to add specific protections to water quality in the Bristol Bay watershed. The 2014 Determination would have ensured large-scale mining did not cause irreversible harm to habitat that sustains the world’s largest salmon fishery.

Just as Bristol Bay fishermen hauled in a near-record harvest of 37 million sockeye salmon, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sent a blow to the industry by reversing an earlier decision to implement Clean Water Act protections for water quality in the watershed. 

You may have commented in the past, but today, fishermen can weigh in again to the Trump Administration on whether protections for Bristol Bay's world-class salmon fishery should be erased.
