A Threat to Our Economic Success - Pebble Mine

Threatens American jobs | Endangers America’s food security

The Grundéns name stands for hard work.  It stands for family. It stands for fishing.  When bad ideas threaten our livelihood, we are going to stand with our community.  Ripping a hole in the heart of the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery and threatening 20,000 American jobs is a bad idea.  Plain and simple.

Mat Jackson General Manager, Grundéns

Bristol Bay is one of the world’s largest fisheries for wild salmon. As a business committed to providing our customers sustainably harvested and raised seafood, New Seasons Market would be negatively impacted with the loss of this fishery.  A mine in the region would benefit very few and hurt so many, including fisherman, retailers, and consumers throughout the supply chain in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

Daisy Berg Seafood Category Manager, New Seasons Market

Conserving the one-of-a-kind resource we have in Bristol Bay is not only economically savvy, but it is also aligned with conservative values that emphasize long-term welfare over short-term gain.  If we are to truly put America first, we must take action to prevent the Pebble Mine.  The region’s economy and culture are rich, and its currency is salmon.  If we take care of the salmon and rivers, that wealth will support communities and American jobs forever.

Perk Perkins CEO, Orvis
