KSWCD has worked in collaboration with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game, U.S. Coast Guard, Kodiak Island Borough, Road Service Areas, and other land owners on the Kodiak road system to remove barriers for salmon to upstream spawning and rearing habitat.
KSWCD replaces or removes culverts and cleared debris to restore access to salmon spawning and rearing habitat for coho, chum, pink, and sockeye salmon in many waterways on the Kodiak archipelago. We have brought millions of dollars in grant funding to Kodiak for fish passages.
