Just as the Lake and Peninsula Borough has diverse and varied geographies, so too is the borough’s economy. Home to two of the world’s largest salmon fisheries, commercial fishing and its attendant support services is the biggest economic driver, but outdoor recreation is growing every year.
Every year thousands of Commercial fishermen from across the country travel to Egegik, Pilot Point, Ugashik, and Chignik Bay to make their go at commercial fishing and every year millions of pounds of fish are processed to be sold all across the world! The Borough has invested in a dock at Chignik that can accommodate the Alaska Marine Highway ferry and a small boat harbor in support of that fishery.
As the gateway to Katami and Lake Clark National Parks, the Alagnak River Wild, the Becharof National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge, and Aniakchak National Monument, the borough offers unrivaled opportunities for recreational businesses. Professional guides and world class lodges offer once in a lifetime experiences for Borough visitors. From trophy hunting to the best sport fishing, photo tours, hiking, camping, geo trekking, kayaking, flight seeing, and much more.
Opportunities for doing business in the Borough are as unlimited as the entrepreneur’s imagination. Contact the Borough with any questions about doing business in Lake and Peninsula.
