The Kodiak King Salmon Derby’s mission is to “preserve and promote sport fishing opportunities on Kodiak Island”.
King salmon are the largest, and many of us feel, the most delicious pacific salmon. King salmon are the premier target of many local sport fishermen and visitors from around the world. Unfortunately, the natural king runs on Kodiak Island are at historic lows and this is the case on many rivers state wide. Sponsoring this derby is one way to acknowledge our roles as consumers in the king salmon world and to help give something back. Proceeds from the derby are dedicated to the king salmon enhancement project currently being conducted by the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. This project is in its’ 18th year and has successfully added to the king salmon population in waters surrounding Kodiak Island. It has also created a viable freshwater king salmon fishery on the Kodiak road system where before there was none.
