Coastal Villages’ strives to be an effective steward of the resources entrusted to us by nature, our people, and the people of Alaska and the United States. While managing the natural resources, we harvest its bounty in a sustainable manner for the benefit of our region. With the fruits of the sea we provide jobs and benefits to the people of the region in a manner consistent with management of our assets and resources for generations to come. On behalf of the 20 member communities, CVRF has grown to be the largest seafood owner/operator headquartered in Alaska.
By taking a strategic, adaptable, and long-term approach to the Bering Sea commercial fisheries, CVRF has realized a fundamental dream of the Community Development Quota (CDQ) program. Our ability as an organization to take risks and invest in ourselves, our fisheries, and our investments in those fisheries, enhances our ability to achieve diverse and sustainable investments in our communities. CVRF is now able to take a broader and balanced approach to managing our Kuskokwim Delta and Bering Sea seafood resources, and in doing so creating viable jobs, infrastructure, and tools for our region to manifest their dreams into realities.
