Bristol Bay Borough

Bristol Bay Borough is known as the "Red Salmon Capital of the World" as well as the "Gateway to Katmai National Park and Preserve." It is located in Southwestern Alaska at the head of Kvichak (KWEE-jak) Bay, an arm of the larger Bristol Bay.

Bristol Bay Borough was incorporated as the state's first borough in 1962. The borough functions as the official governing body for Naknek, South Naknek, and King Salmon and provides a variety of important services. The borough offices are located in Naknek.

The main feature of the borough's setting is the Naknek River and the cliffs bordering Kvichak Bay. At Naknek and South Naknek, where the cliffs are at their highest and the river is at its widest, the combination of the broad tidal river and the brown cliffs with their crowning greenery, present a truly striking picture. Looking across the river from one community to the other, the towns appear dwarfed by the cliffs on which they are situated.

Bristol Bay Salmon?

Bristol Bay Borough is a Rural Alaskan fishing community in South-West Alaska situated at the mouth of the Kvichak River consisting of three cities: Naknek, South Naknek and King Salmon. Our primary export is fresh Bristol Bay Salmon. To our community fishing is a way of life, and without the yearly Salmon run there would be no Bristol Bay.

Every year thousands of fishermen travel to Bristol Bay to make their go at fishing the Bay. And every year millions of pounds of fish are brought in and processed to be sold all across the world!
