Talk about Fish First! A recent study details the earliest-known evidence of North American salmon fishing was found in Alaska. The findings show that Ice Age Paleoindians fished; it was previously believed they only hunted during that time – about 11,500 years ago. This helps researchers understand Paleoindian economies and expansion south and into North America.
Today’s Alaska Natives, including the people of the Bristol Bay region, still rely on salmon for subsistence, cultural and traditional activities, as well as the economic benefits.
See the Bristol Bay Regional Field Guide to learn about the region and the importance of Fish First.

Change can be uncomfortable, but businesses must evolve if they are to be successful. Research shows that actively managing change – such as new processes, adding technology, downsizing or acquisitions – can increase the success rate of these initiatives. The Society for Human Resources Management Foundation has released a report that provides human resources teams guidelines on how to effectively manage and communicate change. See the report.
