Client: Bristol Bay Native Corporation
Location: Bristol Bay
Project Date: 2001-Present
Project Lead: Chris Beck
Agnew::Beck works with the Bristol Bay Native Corporation to promote economic development and improve employment and educational opportunities in the Bristol Bay region. These efforts aim to enrich Alaska Native culture and the ties to the land that are the basis for a way of life for so many people in Bristol Bay.
Agnew::Beck has worked with local businesses and residents in Bristol Bay communities to conduct market research on cultural tourism and branding Bristol Bay wild salmon and other local products. Through this work we developed and launched the Ekwok Fly Fishing + Guide Academy, where local youth learn to become guides for local fly fishing lodges. We also developed and maintain the Visit Bristol Bay Online Business Incubator.
