Introducing the Bristol Bay Fishermen's Association
We are pleased to announce that after fifty years AIFMA has changed its name to the Bristol Bay Fishermen's Association (BBFA). The new name more accurately describes who we are, where we fish, and the fact that we are organized.
We are glad to make the change and are looking forward to addressing key issues for our membership in the coming years. BBFA Board Members
