From the Bristol Bay Native Association:
The Bristol Bay Native Association is conducting a survey to learn the economic needs due to COVID-19 in Bristol Bay and disasters in the Chignik fishery management area. This survey will help all Bristol Bay Communities plan and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the disasters in the Chignik fishery.
Links to the survey can also be found on BBNA's website. Paper copies of the survey will be made available by request.
The survey takes about 10 minutes to fill out, and will be open until the end of September. Responses will identify needs for individuals, employers, small businesses and commercial fishing operations.
Results will be compiled and posted on BBNA's website and shared with communities and regional organizations.
Please Contact Kristina Andrew at BBNA for questions or comments about this survey or to request a paper copy
