Alaskan Fishing Communities Survey

Categorized Under: Business Process Operations + Optimization, Surveys



The Alaskan Fishing Communities Survey, conducted by ICF International, provided data such as revenues derived from fisheries and related businesses, fisheries infrastructure, and community participation in fisheries management. The survey results allowed the client to analyze how changes to natural resource management policies might affect the native population and economies of Alaskan communities, particularly those relying on subsistence fishing. The survey also provided community and tribal leaders a valuable opportunity to voice concerns regarding local fisheries management policies and the unique economic challenges associated with their fisheries-based economy.

Data was collected using a multi-contact mail survey protocol consisting of a pre-survey letter, a survey packet, a a thank-you/reminder postcard, and a second survey packet mailing. A telephone survey to nonresponders was also used to elicit participation in the research effort.
