Alaska Sportfishing Lodge Earns Sustainability Certification
October 12, 2017
The businesses certified by Alaska Green Adventure are leaders in the tourism industry. They are progressive companies that believe that outstanding Alaska experiences can also be sustainable and of benefit to visitors and hosts alike," says Sarah Leonard, President & CEO of the Alaska Travel Industry Association (ATIA).
"Not only does the vitality of our business depend on the health of the environment, but we also want future generations to have the opportunity to enjoy the Alaskan fishing tradition for a long time to come," Steve Cockrell, General Manager.
In Alaska's adventure tourism industry, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club recognizes that the continuation of its business depends on the natural environment, heritage, and communities of southeast Alaska. Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is surrounded by Tongass National Forest, the largest rainforest in North America. The nutrient rich environment supports a prolific food chain and creates the ideal location for salmon to feed before making their return up the rivers to spawn.
By committing to management practices that move toward zero waste, support local artists and businesses, recognize the unique history of the area, and enables people to safely experience Alaskawilderness environments, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club supports sustaining the location's environment as well as tradition.
Opened in 2013, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is an elite luxury lodge located on Noyes Island.
