    (Video is a work in progress, I have it posted as a place holder to enter into the AFS Film Festival for the time being - Thanks!) The Alaska Salmon Program is the oldest continuously running salmon research program in the world. Based out of the University of Washington, the program was established to investigate factors influencing salmon production during a declining salmon fishery in Bristol Bay, Alaska in the mid-1940s. The program strives to understand the ecology and behavior of salmon in relation to envrionmental changes through long-term research and implementation of new ideas and techniques. This video highlights a small fraction of research that is conducted by the Alaska Salmon Program, and celebrates the hardworking researchers that have contributed to the Program’s success.

      The Bristol Bay region of Alaska is one of the planet’s most pristine and prolific ecosystems. In addition, it is the historic home of the area’s three distinct cultural traditions: Eskimo, Aleut, and Athabascan. For thousands of years, the vast resources of the Bay have sustained the people and shaped the customs of the Alaska Native villages whose lifeblood is the Bristol Bay fishery. In an effort to capture and preserve the voices, views, and values of the people who depend upon these resources, Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC) invited its shareholders to document, through personal videos, the people, places and cultural practices most important to them. All footage was shot on one day: October 15, 2011. Sixty-two entries were submitted from as far away as Chignik Lake, a tiny traditional village of 69, to Dillingham, the region’s largest community and hub for services and supplies, as shareholders of all ages took part in this innovative competition. BBNC is proud to share the resulting film with you. The themes and experiences documented here are singular and unique, but they echo concerns and struggles of indigenous peoples around the globe. We hope you enjoy BBNC’s “Day in Our Bay: Voices and Views From Bristol Bay.

        When fishing guide/filmmaker Mark Titus learns why wild salmon populations plummeted in his native Pacific Northwest, he embarks on a journey to discover where the fish have gone and what might bring them back. Along the way, Titus unravels a trail of human hubris, historical amnesia and potential tragedy looming in Alaska – all conspiring to end the most sustainable wild food left on the planet.

            Clips I had off the gopro. Music: Parquet Courts 'Borrowed Time.' I had open time last summer and called my pal Luke whom has fished in Bristol Bay, Alaska for the past 8+ years. I told him I was interested in salmon fishing in Alaska and he connected me with his Dad who needed two deckhands. I purchased my plane ticket to King Salmon and met Montana Tom and Dan. We spent two weeks repairing the fishing boat thee 'Captain Greg,' And then spent the remaining five weeks fishing in Egegik, Alaska in Bristol Bay. Many many mini ventures of boat repairs, storms, and sockeye fishing.

                Today the President took action to protect one of America's greatest natural treasures by signing a Presidential Memorandum to protect Bristol Bay. One of Alaska's most powerful economic engines, and home to one of the world's largest wild salmon runs, Bristol Bay has helped sustain Alaska Native communities for centuries. And every year, the region provides 40 percent of America’s wild-caught seafood, supporting $2 billion in commercial fishing. These waters support good jobs in sportfishing and tourism, too. With migratory birds, sea otters, whales, and seals, Bristol Bay is truly a place unlike any other. Simply put, these waters are too special and too valuable to auction off to the highest bidder.  They belong to all of us – and to future generations.  That’s why ordinary Alaskans have fought for decades to protect Bristol Bay. Because of their hard work – and because of the action the President took today – this extraordinary resource will be there for our children and our children’s children to enjoy tomorrow.

                      This video highlights the scenery of Iliamna Lake and Lake Aleknagik in Southwest Alaska. These two watersheds provide spawning habitat for some of the largest returns of wild sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay, and also serve as important habitat for the development and growth of salmon in their early stages of life. As a keystone species in Bristol Bay, sockeye salmon are of large economic importance to the commercial fishing industry and local lodge outfits, they serve as an important food source for local communities, and also support the diverse and amazing ecosystems within these watersheds. www.JasonSChing.com https://www.facebook.com/ChingJasonS Produced and edited - Jason Ching Additional footage - Hannah Stapleton Songs Message to Bears - Running Through Woodland Message to Bears - Hidden Beneath
