The Borough boundaries encompass 15,000 square miles of isolated, wild and beautiful land and sea. The Borough serves a year-round population of 3,141, with large seasonal increases when seafood processors bring in employees. Commercial fishing and seafood processing are the heart and soul of the region and the driving force of the area’s economy.
