Lake & Peninsula Borough
The Lake and Peninsula Borough is comprised of small commercial fishing communities and traditional Native villages. A significant number of residents rely on subsistence resources for their livelihood. The Borough experiences a large influx of fishing vessels and seafood processors during the summer months. Chignik has an important purse seine fishery and Egegik is mostly dependent on the Bristol Bay drift net fishery. The other communities are involved in more localized fishing efforts in the Aleutians management area. There are also several floating and shore-based processors that operate in different locations within the borough.
