First, we unite all the users on the River to make sure the Yukon gets the attention it deserves.
Second, we bring together the users to come up with our own solutions to the challenges confronting our fishery.
Third, we conduct our own salmon restoration and research projects to help rebuild important habitat and fish stocks. In the winter, we organize regional fishermen’s meetings and organize a four-day annual meeting in a different village each year.
In the summer, we organize and host in-season salmon management teleconferences. These teleconferences are open to all fishermen and are paid for by YRDFA.
Finally, we publish the YRDFA newsletter to keep every one of you up-to-date on the key issues affecting you.
YRDFA works to:
- Provide a forum for river-wide communication
- Resolve issues, through stakeholder collaboration, in fisheries management
- Strengthen long-term economic viability of Yukon River communities
- Conserve Yukon River salmon throughout their lifecycle
- Sustain subsistence fishery and traditional cultures
- Build capacity for YRDFA, its membership and Yukon River fishing families
