Fishing companies involved in the Alaska Seafood Cooperative operate a bottom trawl fishery for yellowfin sole in the nearshore waters around Kuskokwim Bay, Etolin Strait and Nunivak Island. Bering Sea Elders Group and the Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP) engaged in a negotiation with the Alaska Seafood Cooperative to resolve our differences. An agreement was drawn up and the Chaninek Qaluyat Nunivak Working Group formed to address ongoing issues.
