APICDA is a non-profit dedicated to strengthening local economies and building infrastructure to support commerce in six remote villages in the Aleutian-Pribilof region of Alaska. We focus our efforts on community-based initiatives, advocacy, vocational training, education and social programs that have been identified as high priorities. The APICDA board and staff work closely together to achieve our strategic objectives and leverage our resources for maximum benefit to our member communities.

APICDA is a non-profit dedicated to strengthening local fisheries-based economies through increasing direct fisheries participation in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands, building support infrastructure and offering programs to assist the advancement of priority initiatives in its six member communities in the Aleutian-Pribilof region of Alaska. 

APICDA’s board is primarily comprised of local Fishermen’s Association members; one representative per community in addition to a fishing industry and a financial industry representative.

The APICDA board clearly articulates APICDA’s purpose and vision as “sustainable communities” and provides a strategic plan that offers meaningful and measurable results.

APICDA hosts an annual photo contest to capture images of the beautiful region, Indigenous culture and fishing industry.
