Understanding Alaska: Resources

How should we allocate our public natural resources among competing uses, and how can we enhance their value to Alaskans?

Fish, game, timber, land, and other natural resources are owned by all Alaskans. As more residents, technological advances, growing numbers of tourists, and other factors increase the demand for these resources, new institutional structures must be developed for their efficient and fair use. Although the problems are currently most acute in the salmon fishery, many of the same considerations apply in thinking about resource allocation for our other public resources.
