CDFU will share donated salmon with elders on July 6

Cordova District Fishermen United will hold its annual Senior Salmon Day 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, at the Union Hall on Main Street. CDFU will share donated fillets of wild Alaska salmon with seniors aged 60 years and older.

In an announcement of the annual event, CDFU said the association, which represents over 900 commercial fishermen in their families who harvest wild fish in Prince William Sound, the Copper River Flats and the northern-central Gulf of Alaska will once again share their bounty with elders who may not be able to access these fish themselves.

With the help of local partner processors, fishermen generously donate part of their catch to Cordova’s local seniors and hospitals. CDFU gave special thanks to Area E fishermen and all the partners who make the program possible.

CDFU accepted donations from harvesters for Senior Salmon Day between June 20 and July 1.
